Credit cards that are accepted on Paystation include Visa, Master Card, and Discover.
Paystation also accepts E-checks from all checking accounts.
Storing of Information
The only personal information the county keeps is the payer’s name and parcel paying. The e-check and credit card information that is entered when making a payment is passed directly to the bank when the authorization takes place and is not stored by the county. If your preference for payment information to be saved in Paystation, a product of the vendor Retail Lockbox, you may select the option for Paystation to remember your payment information for future payments. Any payment information that the payee elects to be remembered by Paystation will be saved and retained by the vendor Retail Lockbox and not by Snohomish County.
The credit card processor charges a fee that is a flat rate which is subject to change at the vendor discretion. This fee can be seen when making a payment through Paystation before confirming to make the payment . This is true regardless of the amount paid (large or small) or how many payments are made.
For any Bank Returned items you will be charged a $35.00 processing fee.
Washington State statute, RCW 36.29.190, states that the costs of using credit cards, charge cards, or other electronic transaction must be borne by the payer. The fee is paid to a third party, not the county, to process the credit card payment.
RCW 84.56.020 mandates that only current year first half tax is payable on or before April 30 of current year. Current year first half taxes, interest, and penalties are due after April 30 and full current year taxes, interest, and penalties are due after October 31 of current year. All prior year delinquencies are due in full.
Property Account Updates
Because Paystation is owned and operated by a third party vendor it may take up to 5 business days for a payment to post to your account .
