Accounts Receivable Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a lien?

Q: What if I cannot pay the taxes I owe?

Q: Do you accept credit cards?


Q: What is a lien?

A: A lien is a legal claim against property which would prevent the taxpayer from selling current or future property with a clear title. A lien is a matter of public record and is picked up by various credit reporting agencies and becomes part of the taxpayer's credit record.

Q: What if I cannot pay the taxes I owe?

A: Please pay as much as you possibly can by the due date of the return, then contact the Accounts Receivable Section (Collections) at 701.328.1244. Ask to speak with a collection officer to determine whether a payment plan can be established which could prevent the filing of a tax lien or other adverse action. Post dated checks will not be accepted. Most importantly, DO NOT hold back the return and miss a filing deadline simply because you do not have the money to pay the amount due at the time of filing.

Q: Do you accept credit cards?

A: No not at the current time, but please check back. That option is being explored.
