Jefferson County Clerk, Jacki Shadle, and her clerks are pleased to announce that the Clerk’s office will begin accepting credit cards and electronic checks as a form of payment on April 10, 2017. The payments will be processed by Point & Pay, one of the fastest–growing companies in the convenience pay industry.
Users will pay a convenience fee of 2.5% ($2.00 minimum convenience fee) on credit card payments and a $3.00 convenience fee on e-checks up to $10,000. It will appear as two separate payment transactions: one for the purchase and a second for the convenience fee.
