Special Assessment Payment Methods
Special assessments are different than property taxes. They are the method the city uses to pay for infrastructure improvements that benefit properties, such as water main replacement and flood protection projects. The cost of these projects is divided among properties that benefit from them.
Payments can be made with cash, check or credit card as follows:
- In Person: At the city payments window on the second floor of Fargo City Hall, 200 3rd Street North, Fargo, ND 58102
- By Phone: With credit/debit card only - please dial 701.241.1324, select Option #2. There are no fees applied for credit card use.
- By Mail: Address To: City of Fargo Special Assessments, 200 3rd Street North, Fargo, ND 58102
