What you need to know:

How does AutoPay work?
Once we receive and validate your banking information, you're all set to begin AutoPay on your next utility bill! Continue to pay on your account by cash, check or credit card until you see "Do Not Pay" on your monthly bill. You will continue to receive your monthly bill after AutoPay is activated. On the due date your bank account will be automatically debited for the current charges shown on the bill. Of course, you can still call the City's Customer Care Center if you have questions about your bill.

Who may participate in AutoPay?
Any utility customer without a past-due balance who has had no more than one returned payment within the last twelve months may participate in AutoPay.

What if my banking information changes?
It is critical that you notify the City of Tulsa regarding any change in your banking information such as account number, routing number, etc. Inaccurate information may result in payments being refused by your financial institution. You may be subject to late fees and returned payment fees if you fail to notify us of changes to your banking information.

What happens if my payment does not go through?
Payments may be returned by your financial institution because of insufficient funds, closed account or other reasons. Check with your financial institution about any fee it may impose. If your payment is returned, the City will charge a $25 processing fee. The City will terminate participation in AutoPay if payments are returned more than once within a 12-month period.

Without cancelled checks, how can I prove I made my payment?
Your financial institution's monthly statement will show your payment, including the date and exact amount paid.

How do I cancel AutoPay?
You may cancel your participation at any time by calling our Customer Care Center at (918) 596-9511. We are available to help you Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., except for City holidays. Cancellation will be effective no later than ten business days after we receive your notification.
