The City of Norton will begin offering a new online payment service that, for a limited time during the COVID-19 pandemic, will not require customers to pay a convenience fee. The city has partnered with MuniciPay to allow customers to pay City of Norton real estate taxes, personal property taxes, utility bills, and permits using credit cards or electronic check payments. Please see below for information about how to use the new online payment service. The MuniciPay portal can be accessed by visiting www.nortonva.gov/onlinepayment.
Credit Card Payments
To pay a city tax or utility bill or permit fee with a credit card, visit www.nortonva.gov/onlinepayment. Credit cards accepted for bill payments include MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Visa. For a limited time, MuniciPay will not charge customers a per transaction service fee.
Electronic Check Payments
To pay a city tax or utility bill or permit fee using an electronic check payment, visit www.nortonva.gov/onlinepayment. Payments will be withdrawn from your checking or savings account. You will need your 9-digit routing number and your account number. Both can be found on your personal checks. See example below. IMPORTANT: When Payment Options appears, click the “Switch to Pay with Check” link and then continue entering your information. For a limited time, MuniciPay will not charge customers a per transaction service fee.
