Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan announces today that all Harris County Tax Office locations will begin accepting credit and debit cards for automobile transactions.
“I want citizens to have more payment options and expedited service when they come to the Tax Office,” said Mr. Sullivan. “Offering credit and debit card payments for automobile transactions will make it more convenient for customers as they come here to take care of business.”
All Harris County Tax Office branch locations will begin accepting all major credit and debit cards for all automobile transactions, including registration stickers, license plates, automobile titles and temporary disability placards. Credit and debit card automobile transactions will be subject to a 2.15% transaction fee and a flat 50 cents processing fee by the service vendor.
In addition to accepting credit and debit cards, the Harris County Tax Office also offers residents to renew automobile registration stickers online, by mail or at more than 200 renewal locations at partner grocery stores and participating AAA offices.
The Harris County Tax Office Automobile Division performs approximately 3.2 million automobile registrations and 940,000 title transfers in Harris County each year. It also works closely with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles to register motor vehicles, collect registration and title fees and distribute them to the proper entities.
