SERVICE FEES FOR CREDIT AND DEBIT CARD PAYMENTS

Beginning August 6, 2018, the Columbia County Register of Wills and Recorder of Deeds Office will offer the option to pay County fees using a Credit Card or Debit Card as a convenience for residents and businesses to pay County fees only. Please take note that State Realty Transfer Taxes and State Inheritance Taxes are NOT County fees, therefore these taxes cannot be paid using a Credit or Debit Card.

In order to offer this convenience and comply with credit/debit card company by-laws, the Columbia County Register of Wills and Recorder of Deeds Office uses a third-party processor to handle credit/debit card payments processed over the phone and in person. The third-party processor we use is Govolution. The Service Fee (also referred to as convenience fee or merchant fee) imposed by the credit/debit card companies must be passed on to the card holder, not the Columbia County Register of Wills and Recorder of Deeds Office or the County of Columbia.


GOVOLUTION’S SERVICE FEES ARE AS FOLLOWS:

For Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit card payments and MasterCard and Visa debit card payments the fee is 2.5% (with a minimum fee of $1.00) on the total amount paid. This Service Fee belongs solely to Govolution and does not represent revenue to the Columbia County Register of Wills and Recorder of Deeds Office or the County of Columbia in any way.
