Payment Methods

Current month charges shown on your bill are due when the bill is received. The bill reflects a "service to" date next to the address information and a "pay by" date at the bottom below the total. Bills become delinquent when payment is not posted by the "pay by" date printed on the bill.  Where delinquent balances exist, accounts are subject to final notice and/or service interruption. Late fees may be assessed. To avoid late notices and/or late fees, please ensure that your payment method allows for receipt and posting by the due date. To avoid service interruption following receipt of a final notice, contact the Credit and Collections Section by phone at (813) 274-8811 to clarify billing details or make payment arrangements.  Utility customers making payments by methods other than those listed here may experience delays in payment processing and posting to their accounts.
