ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota’s tax man is making it easier to pay by credit or debit card, saying a new payment system that goes online July 1 will be convenient for taxpayers.
The state Department of Revenue said Wednesday that a new website, www.payMNtax.com, will accept credit and debit cards for a small fee. The fee is lower than previous fees charged by a different vendor.
It’s part of an effort to take the hassle out of paying taxes. Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans says he hopes taxpayers will find the site “convenient and easy to use.”
The website allows taxpayers to record digital time stamps showing payments and to send themselves email reminders for future taxes.
Taxpayers can also pay taxes electronically without fees by using the department’s e-Services website or phone system.
