Monroe County Tax Collector’s Office Goes Live with PaymentExpress®January 15, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Monroe County Tax Collector’s Office has completed their transition to PaymentExpress®, Grant Street Group’s electronic payment processing platform. Home to the Florida Keys and over 76,000 citizens, Monroe County is the southernmost county in the United States.
The Monroe County Tax Collector’s Office collects over $230 million in property taxes each year from five separate office locations in Key West, Big Pine Key, Marathon, Plantation Key, and Key Largo. PaymentExpress will allow the Tax Collector’s office to accept online and in-office payments for taxes and fees, permits, and licences via all major credit and debit card brands (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express), as well as e-checks.
The change will also provide taxpayers with two new services: all taxpayers will now be able to make debit card payments using PIN debit cards at a flat low rate (regardless of payment amount), and the ability for tourist tax filers to save bank account details for future payments.
PaymentExpress is fully integrated with TaxSys, Grant Street’s tax collection and billing platform. To make a payment, visit the Tax Collector’s website at http://www.monroetaxcollector.com.
