Tax Office

Our office has reopened to the public. We truly sympathize with all taxpayers experiencing financial difficulties during this crisis. At this time, the Governor has not issued any orders to extend payment deadlines or reduce fees related to property taxes. We have no discretion to waive penalty and interest under these circumstances, nor can we extend delinquency dates. Please visit the Payment Plans tab on our website, items 2 & 3, for additional information on paying delinquent property taxes in installments.

For business owners, you may contact the Small Business Administration at 1-800-659-2955 for possible assistance. A list of additional resources can be found at

The City of El Paso collects property taxes on behalf of all the 38 units of government that levy a tax within El Paso County.

The purpose of this website is to make information readily available for your use.
