Convenience Fee

The City of Newark recently implemented a new service allowing residents to pay their taxes online and over the phone.

The city will charge a 2.25 percent "convenience fee" for the service.

On the average 2014 Newark tax bill of $5,365, residents will pay an additional $120.

Will a 2.25 percent convenience fee deter you from paying your taxes online or over the phone with a credit/debit card?
