Bill Payments

U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP) utilizes a lockbox facility at the U.S. Bank in St. Louis, Missouri, to receive, process, and post most bill payments. When CBP generates a bill, the address where payment should be sent is printed on the actual CBP Bill Form. Accordingly, it is important that payments are sent to the correct address. The address for the U.S. Bank lockbox as reflected on most bills is:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Bill Payments
P.O. Box 979126
St. Louis, MO 63197-9000

Please note, bills for Fines, Penalties, and Forfeitures (FP&F) will have the address of the respective FP&F office located at the port that issued the bill. Payments should be sent to that location.

Interest is assessed on bills based on the date CBP receives payment. To avoid additional interest, please reference the "AMOUNT DUE AFTER" late payment date that is printed on each bill and ensure that CBP receives payment on or before that date. Generally, allow 7 to 10 days for payments being sent by U.S. Postal Service (USPS) regular mail and 2 to 3 days if sent by USPS overnight express mail.

As a result, interest may be assessed and rebilled due to the delayed processing and late payment. When sending payment, a copy of each bill should be included with the payment. Also, if a single bill or a few bills are being paid, the bill number(s) should be annotated on the check, to the extent possible, as an extra precaution.

Please note that effective October 18, 2021 as part of Release 4, CBP is replacing the current CBP Form 6084 with a new CBP Bill Form to provide the public with additional information to identify the authenticity of the bill and status information, as well as better access to CBP resources to address questions.  The CBP Bill Form will also have a specific version dedicated to the recipients of bills for deferred payments of internal revenue taxes owed on distilled spirits, wines, and beer imported into the United States. This new deferred tax CBP Bill Form (CBP Bill Form (DT)).  Please note that this CBP Bill Form will continue to also be identifiable as the CBP Form 6084 unless and until the associated numerical designation of 6084 becomes obsolete under a future rulemaking that would be published in the Federal Register. See 86 FR 56968 (October 13, 2021).

Please note, only debit voucher and surety payments may be mailed to the Revenue Division.

If a payer chooses to send payment for bills to the U.S. Bank Lockbox by an overnight courier, other than the USPS, the following address should be used. However, because the payment may be delivered to a different station within the lockbox facility at the bank, posting of the payment to bills may be delayed several days. Accordingly, this address should only be used as a last resort and a delay should be expected. Send payment
