Thurston Treasurer Announces New Property Tax Payment Method.
OLYMPIA - Thurston County Treasurer Shawn Myers announced that taxpayers now have the option to pay property taxes, on-line or in person, using American Express, Discover, MasterCard or VISA credit or debit cards. There is a fee to use the service; however property owners also can still pay on-line without a fee by electronic check. The County Treasurer has contracted with Point & Pay, a third party vendor, to operate as an extension of their customer support and payment processing services.-30-</b
"There has been great demand from taxpayers to have the ability to pay their property taxes using a credit card. It will be helpful for them to have an additional payment option", said Myers. The new service gives taxpayers a flexible, secure method of making payments conveniently and on time.
