Payment Options

Fairfax County offers a variety of payment options to make paying your taxes as simple and convenient as possible!

Fairfax County provides the option to pay most of your tax bills online.

Simply input information from your bill and you will be able to pay online! Pay online with e-check or credit/debit card. A third-party processing fee is assessed for credit/debit card payments. There is no charge for e-check payments.

  • For vehicle tax bills, you will need the last 4 digits of your VIN and property number as shown on your tax bill. If you do not have a bill with you, you will need your DMV customer number (on your driver's license) and the last 4 digits of your vehicle's VIN.
  • For real estate taxes, you will need this year's stub number from your real estate tax bill. If you wish to pay now and do not have a current bill, please call DTA at 703-222-8234 to obtain your stub number.
  • Pay your real estate and vehicle taxes using your smartphone and QR code reader. Just scan the QR code at the top of your bill and you will be brought to our online payment portal. This option is not currently available for all tax types.
  • Pay Your Fairfax County Taxes on-the-go with our free mobile app. Search Fairfax County Government on Google Play or the Apple App Store. Once you download the app and launch it, click on the Services icon, select the tax type you want to pay, and follow the simple instructions. Make sure you have the bill for the tax you are planning to pay.

Please note that the payment page will timeout after 20 min of inactivity. If this happens, you will need to refresh the page and start from the beginning.
