Madison County Partners with Forte Payment Systems
Partnership unifies tax payments into a streamlined checkout
Allen, TX - August 15, 2013
Armed with a comprehensive suite of payment processing solutions, Forte joined forces this year with the Madison County (Illinois) Treasurer's Office to provide technologies that enable customers to make swift and successful payments.
This partnership allows taxpayers the flexibility to choose between using credit cards, debit cards or electronic checks. Additionally, the ability to create a scheduled payment can bring peace of mind, knowing that future taxes owed are taken care of up-front.
Taxpayers also have the option of paying all of their taxes in a single transaction by adding each item to one's individual shopping cart - this means simplified payments and a simplified tax season.
Madison County Treasurer Kurt Prenzler, CPA, said the recent partnership is beneficial to both because it offers ease in paying taxes.
"The new system with Forte is a breeze to promote since it is so easy to implement and navigate," Prenzler said. "It's quick and reliable for processing transactions. It's a new step for our office, and we are excited about sharing it with our taxpayers."
