Back Tax:

Payment for back taxes must be made in the form of cashier's check, money order, or cash. Back taxes cannot be paid using credit or debit cards and cannot be paid online or over the phone. 

Back tax amounts cannot be given out over the phone and must be requested in writing to the Cochise County Treasurer's Office. Requests can be emailed to or mailed to Cochise County Treasurer, PO Box 1778, Bisbee, AZ 85603. The request must include the parcel number, name on the property, and your contact information.

If you are redeeming a property on behalf of owner an Affidavit of Redemption is required. Forms are located at the bottom of this page.  



Tax Liens:

As of December 31, 2003, by law the Treasurer can no longer process administrative foreclosure for Treasurer deeds.

Certificates purchased during the 1999 Tax Lien Sale and after must obtain a Judicial foreclosure for the issuance of Treasurer’s deeds.
