Credit cards will be accepted for property and school tax payment beginning Monday, March 4 in the Town of Boston, said Jennifer A. Mule, Boston Town Clerk/Tax Collector. Every citizen and business across the town will be able to pay property and school taxes using their major credit card or debit card.
By collecting a small convenience fee from citizens that opt to use their credit or debit card, MuniciPAY/Nationwide Payment Solutions is able to provide its services to the Town of Boston at no cost. This service model ensures that the Town of Boston will not have to seek out tax-payer dollars to implement a payment system to accept electronic payments either online or in person. Only citizens that use their credit or debit card will be assessed the small convenience fee and citizens who wish to continue making payments using traditional methods will be able to continue doing so, without any additional fee.
Town of Boston residents who wish to make tax payments using their credit or debit card can do so by visiting www.tslco.net/boston.htm or by visiting the town clerks office. Use of credit cards for other services offered at the Town Clerk’s office will be available in the near future.
