The municipal office in the town of Middlesex, Vt., is pleased to announce that citizens and businesses now have the convenience of paying municipal bills online through their website, http://middlesexvermont.org/.
“We are extremely excited to be able to offer a convenient new way for citizens and businesses to pay their property taxes and permit fee bills with the municipality online,” said Cindy Carlson, Municipal Treasurer and Zoning Administrator for Middlesex.
Through the new Payport service linked off their town’s website, residents and business owners now have the option to pay their property tax bills and zoning permit fees with either a credit card or an e-check 24 hours a day/7 days a week in a secure online environment. Backboned by a flexible Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant electronic payment engine, Payport securely processes millions of transactions every year for government partners across the United States.
The Town of Middlesex partnered with NIC Services under a self-funded model that does not require tax dollars to develop and maintain the online service. It is the fifth such service provided to a Vermont municipality since June 2013. Additionally, the Payport self-funded service has been in use since 2011 by the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles through the State’s partnership with Vermont Information Consortium, a Montpelier-based subsidiary of NIC.
