Payment Options

In addition to cash and/or check, the City of Paducah accepts credit and debit card payments at City Hall. This service for in-person and over-the-phone payments provides a convenient way to pay for many of Paducah’s fees and charges. Services payable by credit or debit card include business licenses, property tax bills, building permits, fines, and liens. 

A 2.95 percent service charge will apply on credit and debit card payments. Payment types include American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. The City does not charge or retain this service charge. There is a $2.00 minimum per transaction.
