CBJ cash office and sales tax office returns to regular service hours

This comes after months of reduced operating hours due to a staffing shortage

Starting Monday, the City Borough of Juneau’s Treasury — including the cash office and sales tax office — will return to its regular 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. operating hours on weekdays, along with opening its doors to the public at 10 a.m. on second Wednesday of each month. This comes after a monthslong period of reduced hours.

“We were short staff this fall and it just wasn’t realistic to have it open on a normal schedule,” said Jeff Rogers, city finance director. “That wasn’t desirable and we wanted to catch that up to open full time so we’re going to start that next week.”

Rogers said the change is expected to remain the status quo moving forward, and there is no intention to reduce the hours again in the future.

Residents still have other options to pay tax or utility bills without going in person to its city hall office such as mail-in payments, dropping off payments at the various local drop boxes across town or utilizing online payment options.
