Is there an extra fee when paying for property taxes online?

Payments made by credit card are processed by a secure 3rd party payment processor, who charges a 2.5% processing fee on the grand total of all transactions. This is necessary to cover the additional fee (also called interchange fees) that financial institutions/credit card companies charge payment processors for credit card purchases.  No part of the 2.5% fee is sent to or kept by the Manatee County Tax Collector's office.


To avoid the processing fee, you may pay your property taxes online by using your checking account information and electronically debiting the funds.
