The city of Watertown has started accepting online bill payments for city and Jefferson County property taxes, delinquent school taxes, water/sewer bills, refuse tote bills and sewer permit bills. Customers making payments with credit or debit cards will be charged a convenience fee of 2.85 percent of the transaction amount plus 28 cents per transaction.
They may also choose to pay with an e-check for a convenience fee of $2.50 per transaction. Customers may also be notified by email the next time a bill is produced.

The city offers a free ACH Debit Payment Plan for water/sewer bills and refuse tote bills. It allows the city to electronically deduct the bills amount from a customers checking or savings account on the due date.
