- Check has a current date; postdated checks cannot be accepted
- Include tax stubs for all properties that you are paying (If you do not have the stub, please include your block and lot number, tax account number or the property location)
- Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for any information you require returned
- Please do not staple your tax stub to your check
