If you pay using this method, you will see two charges, one for your property taxes and another one for your credit/debit card fees. Credit Card Fee 2.5%/Debit Card Fee 1.5%. The fees will appear on your statement from Value Payment Systems. The e-check option is only available when paying property taxes on-line. An E-Check Fee of $1.00 per transaction applies.
