Is it possible to make a payment by telephone or over the Internet using a credit card?
The Person County Tax Collector's Office has entered into an agreement with Voice Data Solutions and ccpayment services to provide taxpayers this automated payment service. Ccpayments Services will, however, charge a convenience fee for all credit card transactions.
Tell me more about the convenience fee.
There are no charges by Person County for processing the payment transaction. Ccpayments Services will, however, charge a convenience fee. You will be informed of all charges and fees before you authorize the payment. This fee is in addition to any charges, such as interest, that may be assessed by your credit card issuer or financial institution.
All in all, we feel that the benefits of being able to use your credit card to pay your taxes outweigh the cost of the convenience fee. Not only do you have a safe, simple, and easy to use system, but you can take advantage of any rewards or points your card issuer offers for using your card.
Does Person County receive the convenience fee?
This fee is not part of your tax and Person County does not receive the convenience fee. When paying by telephone or the Internet, please allow two business days for your payment to be credited to your account.
What credit cards can I use?
American Express, Discover Card, MasterCard, and Visa can be used.
Can I use my debit card?
The ability to pay with debit cards depends on the type of card issued by your financial institution. There are debit cards that can be used as credit cards. These cards usually have a MasterCard or Visa logo and do not require a PIN number. This type of card may be used for the payment of taxes.
