To save business owners time and money, the City of Fresno now offers an E-check option for paying business tax renewals. Instead of paying a 2.3% convenience fee with a credit card, business owners can now choose to pay with E-check for a flat fee of $0.89 per transaction regardless of the amount owed. The payment will be posted the same day. You can expect to receive an email to print your business tax certificate within 24 hours of payment.
The E-check fee is not collected by the City of Fresno, but by the payment processor; and, therefore, will not be reflected on your business tax or dog license account. Customers may continue to pay with a check, by mail, or by check/cash in person without any additional charges.
