Automatic Payments

Download the Signup Form Here

The City of Center Line is offering you the opportunity to pay your tax and water/sewer bills through our Direct Payment Service. By sending in a completed enrollment form, your bills will automatically be deducted from your specified checking account on the bill due date. You will have the option of signing up for the Direct Payment Service for both your tax bill and your water/sewer bill, but you can also opt to sign up for only one or the other if desired

Please continue to pay your bill as you normally would until you receive notice from the City of Center Line that you have been signed up for this service. The City offers this program to you at no charge. Most financial institutions do not charge for this service either. Please contact your financial institution if you are unsure. Once signed up, you will still receive bills from the City for the services (i.e., tax and water/sewer) you have elected to pay via the Direct Payment Service. If you decide to cancel, simply stop by City Hall or write to the City of Center Line:
