Effective December 10, 2015, the Beaufort County Treasurer’s Office has reduced convenience fees by 0.25%. These fees are charged when a taxpayer pays by credit card, debit card, or electronic check.
“We understand that paying taxes can be difficult enough without adding fees,” said Maria Walls, Beaufort County Treasurer. “We have renegotiated with the County’s credit card processor to ensure we are doing everything we can to minimize fees for our taxpayers.”
The new fees are summarized below:
• Over the counter and online credit card and debit card payments: 2.50%
• Online electronic check payments: $2.50 (flat fee)
