Adams County Treasurer, Brigitte Grimm, has eliminated E-Check transaction fees for online property tax payments.
“Aligning with the needs of our citizens is our top priority. As a result, we improved online access with real time results and now provide electronic statements. The next logical step was to offer a FREE online “E-Check” solution.”
Secure online payments prevent lost or delayed mail that may result in late fees. Additionally, this option eliminates the “last” labor intensive process in the Treasurer’s office.
