Enroll in Auto Pay

For the convenience of individuals and businesses, all public water and public sewer bills collected by Allegany County may be automatically paid by being deducted from a personal or business checking account. This option, known as Auto Pay, is offered free of charge. To enroll in Auto Pay:

  1. Complete the Auto Pay Authorization Form (PDF).
  2. Attach a voided personal or business check.
  3. Submit the form and check either by mail or in person to:
    Allegany County Tax and Utility Office
    701 Kelly Road
    Cumberland, MD 21502-2803
The Tax and Utility Office will verify your information. Auto Pay will be activated for your next quarter's utility bill.

Auto Pay customers will continue to be mailed quarterly utility bills. Your quarterly utility bill will state Auto Pay and provide the date that your utility payment, i.e., amount due, will be deducted from your checking account. Your checking account statement will reflect the deduction of funds for the utility payment. Your checking account statement will be your proof of utility payment.

If your Auto Pay is rejected for payment for any reason by your financial institution, you will have to pay a $35 service charge to the Tax and Utility Office.

If you have questions, please call the Tax and Utility Office at 301-777-5965.
