Indianapolis Sees 90% Increase in Online Tax Payments after Partnering with Invoice Cloud
Innovative technology allows taxpayers to manage installment payments
BOSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Marion County Treasurer Claudia Fuentes reports that there was a dramatic growth in online payments during the recent tax collection cycle for Marion County property taxes. The Marion County Treasurer’s Office recently partnered with Invoice Cloud™, a leading paperless billing and online payment provider, to offer new and innovative tax payment options. Since these new options have been available to taxpayers, online payments of property taxes have increased by 90%.
According to Marion County Treasurer Claudia Fuentes, “We are thrilled that so many taxpayers are using these convenient, budget-friendly and personalized payment methods to pay their property taxes. Implementing this service was easy to do through our partnership with Invoice Cloud, and more importantly, Marion County residents find it simple to use. Taxpayers can pay online with immediate confirmation by email, plus they can schedule future payments, budget and implement a monthly payment plan, receive email notifications, and even go completely paperless.” For more information, go to http://www.indy.gov/treasurer and click on “View or Pay Bill.”
The Invoice Cloud service was introduced to Marion County taxpayers in April, eliciting thousands more online payments than in previous years and many new enrollments for paperless tax statements. The service offers multiple payment methods for credit cards, debit cards and electronic checks including automatic payments, one time payments and scheduled payments. The latest innovation, “Flex-Pay,” allows taxpayers to create their own payment plans with multiple payment dates and amounts. This means taxpayers on a budget can set up automatic payments to coincide with dates when their money is available. Many taxpayers in Marion County have already set up payment plans through this service for their second installments due November 13, 2012, providing them with peace of mind. In addition to online payments, taxpayers can still pay bills via phone, at select banks during the payment period, or at the Treasurer’s Office.
Says Bob Bennett, Invoice Cloud CEO, “We are extremely pleased to be working with the innovative leadership and staff at Marion County. The results speak for themselves, as it’s a service residents clearly like to use.”
