TROY, Mich., Apr. 16, 2014 - Pierce County residents now have access to an improved option for paying their property taxes, which are next due on April 30. The County’s partnership with Point & Pay (http://www.pointandpay.com), a wholly-owned subsidiary of North American Bancard, enables taxpayers to settle their obligations online or via telephone using credit cards, debit cards, and electronic checks, with additional services to come.
County Assessor-Treasurer Mike Lonergan said, “We are a county of over 800,000 people, so there’s a lot of work to be done by a small team at my office in Tacoma. Partnering with Point & Pay helps me deliver on two of my campaign promises: applying best management practices to improve our services, and communicating with citizens using the latest technology. Our new systems make our services better every day.”
“We welcome Pierce County as a key addition to our growing list of government clients in the Northwest that are providing the next generation of payment options to their citizens,” said Kevin C. Connell, President, Point & Pay. “We look forward to working with Mike Lonergan and his team to provide innovative systems and exemplary service to Pierce County citizens.”
