bank/credit card payments to counties

A payment to a county may be made by any of the following financial instruments that the fiscal body of the county authorizes for use:

  1. Cash
  2. Check
  3. Bank Draft
  4. Money Order
  5. Bank card or credit card
  6. Electronic fund transfer
  7. Any other financial instrument authorized by the fiscal body

If there is a charge to the county for the use of a financial instrument, the county may collect a sum equal to the amount of the charge from the person who uses the financial instrument. If authorized by the fiscal body of the county, the county may accept payments with a bank card or credit card. However, the procedure authorized for particular type of payment must be uniformly applied to all payments of the same type. The county may contract with a bank card or credit card vendor for acceptance of bank cards or credit cards. [IC 36-1-8-11]
