The Walton County Tax Collector's Office offers you the convenience of renewing your vehicle tag or paying your property taxes online. Payment information along with any applicable convenience fees are outlined below.
An online payment program allows customers to pay for their transactions by credit card (Discover, MasterCard, American Express, or VISA) or by electronic check. A convenience fee of 2.5% applies to all debit/credit card transactions (a $2 minimum) and $1.50 fee applies to e-check transactions. The Tax Collector does not keep any portion of these fees.
Credit card companies charge a fee to businesses or governments who accept their cards. The fee is a percentage of the amount charged. Thus, accepting credit/debit cards is an additional expense. To offset the cost of credit card usage, Florida Law specifically provides for a convenience fee to be added to those transactions.
