There is a convenience fee on all property tax credit card transactions. The convenience fee is 2.5% of the amount of the property tax payment. The City of Madison is required to collect and remit 100% of the property tax billed amounts to the taxing jurisdictions. Therefore, the fee for using this type of payment method is borne by the user. For a no fee method of payment, see eCheck described below.

- CHECKING/SAVINGS ACCOUNT (eCHECK): There is NO FEE for this method. It requires you to enter your checking or savings account information.
