Payments made using your checking or savings account, commonly referred to as ACH payments, will be free of charge to the taxpayer. Payments made using your credit or debit card are subject to a convenience fee of 2.85% added to the amount of the payment.
The cost to process an ACH payment is actually less than processing a paper check, therefore there is no need to recover additional costs. Credit and debit transactions are processed through Visa or Mastercard. Visa and Mastercard charge a fee to the merchant (Canton Township) for using their product. This fee, called an interchange fee, plus a handling fee for Invoice Cloud, makes up the 2.85% convenience charge.
