Cardholders pay a service fee at the time of their transaction. There is an additional fee for payment by phone via the GovPayNet call center (1-888-604-7888). There are no charges to Marion County Treasurer for participation in the GovPayNet service.
“Taxpayers can pay their property tax obligations to the Marion County Treasurer in the same way they handle other transactions, anytime, day or night, and without having to write a check, carry large sums of cash, or wait in line,” explained Jan Draper, Marion County Treasurer.
GovPayNet accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. “Each business day, we reconcile the previous day’s payments with the government agency and then electronically forward the cardholders’ payments in full to the agency’s bank account,” said Mark MacKenzie, CEO of GovPayNet. “We also handle all cardholder calls and inquiries about any payment issues,” he added.
