Can I deduct the convenience fee on my Michigan individual income tax return?
No. The convenience fee is a nondeductible expense.
Can I pay Treasury directly by credit card instead and save the fee?No. Treasury has made the decision to use JPMorgan Chase for processing card payments.
Is there a fee for this service?There is no fee for eCheck payments. Credit and debit card payments will be charged a convenience fee (2.35% of the total payment for credit cards and a flat rate of $3.95 for debit cards). The fee will be displayed on the payment verification screen. You will have the opportunity to cancel the payment before the fee is charged. The fee will appear as a separate transaction on your bank or card statement and is paid directly to the payment processing company.
Who gets the convenience fee?Treasury does not receive or charge any fees for card payments. The convenience fee is charged by JPMorgan Chase to cover the cost of processing the transaction.
Who should I contact regarding a billing error or fees charged to my credit card account?You should contact the credit card issuer for any assistance with a billing error.
Why is there a convenience fee and why am I paying for this?
The convenience fee is charged by JPMorgan Chase to cover the cost of processing the transaction. The fees are based on the amount of the payment or the payment type, as follows:
- eCheck: no fee
- Credit card payment: 2.35% of the total payment
- Debit card payment: $3.95 flat fee
Why should I use this service and pay a fee to the service provider?
This service is just one payment option for you to use. If you filed a Michigan individual income tax return in the previous tax year you may choose to make your payment using the eCheck option, which does not have a fee. If you prefer to make your payment by check or money order, please refer to the specific form instructions for more information.
Will I be charged a cash advance fee?No. Your payment will be treated like a retail purchase and not a cash advance.
