Treasurer's Optional Payment (TOP) Program

The Hamilton County Treasurer provides the TREASURER'S OPTIONAL PAYMENT (TOP) PROGRAM, which allows residential and commercial property owners to prepay their real estate taxes in installments. The program is voluntary and allows property owners to prepay each future tax bill in five installments. It is similar to an escrow account with a financial institution. There is no service charge associated with the program. If interested in the TOP Program, please remember:

  • TAXES MUST BE CURRENT OR IN A DELINQUENT CONTRACT

  • BOTH RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES QUALIFY

  • CANNOT BE USED TO PAY TAXES ALREADY OWED

Once enrolled in the program, you will be sent four prepayment coupons, representing your estimated tax payment. Each month you would mail your one-fifth payment, along with a coupon, to the treasurer's office. The final statement will be your tax bill, which will reflect all prepayments made and the final balance due.

If you would like more information about this program, please call: (513) 946-4788.
