LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Lancaster County Treasurer, Rachel Garver, reports a reduction in service fees beginning January 3rd, 2022 for those paying property taxes.
Online payments in the form of electric checks will be free, and online credit and debit card service fees will be reduced to 2.19% of the transaction. In-person debit card transactions will have a flat fee of $2.00 and in-person credit card transactions will also be reduced to 2.19%.
This change comes after the Lancaster County Treasurer’s Office announced reduced fees in partnership with Grant Street Group.
