Official Payments Corporation
The City of Cumberland has partnered with Official Payments Corporation (OPC) to facilitate automated payments online and by telephone for parking violations, real property tax, personal property tax, corporate tax, and metered water bills. As of July 1, 2009, OPC does not assess a convenience fee for City of Cumberland bills paid online. You may still see a notice on their website about a fee being assessed until OPC completes changes to their website.
