14 Apr Unified Court System Implements Credit Card Service Fee
(1 minute to read) The Unified Court System announced that beginning on April 1st, 2021, it will no longer pay the service fee for credit card transactions entered by Court users. The Court System explained that it would be implementing this change due to its ongoing budgetary concerns, and as a result, a processing fee of 2.99% of the payment amount will be assessed on all credit card payments.
In the notice, the court system reminded the public that it would still accept payments in the form of a cashier/certified check for those looking to avoid such fees. Additionally, it explained that neither the Municipality nor the Court receives any of the imposed service fee.
Those that use a credit card in future court system transactions will receive one receipt for the Court fee and another for the Service fee. It is important to note that the cardholder must sign both receipts for the payment to be processed.
