We appreciate your patience while we adjust to these ever-changing circumstances.  We are currently planning a phased re-opening to the public.  We will enter the first phase of public re-opening when protective equipment has been installed in our office.  At that time, we will open to the public on an appointment only basis.  We will ask that anyone that is able to complete their transaction online do so, in order to save appointment slots for those that are unable to complete their transaction online.  In other words, if you are reading this website, we will continue to ask you to complete your transaction online.

Credit Card Transaction Fees

The Missoula County Commissioners have resolved to absorb credit card processing fees for motor vehicle and property tax transactions under $3,000.  These changes are automatic and are reflected on the payment screen for any payment.
