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 with a flat fee of $0.89 per transaction regardless of the amount owed. All E-Check payments made after 8:00 PM PST will be posted the next business day. You can expect to receive an email to print your certificate within 24 hours of your 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.
