Use of Limited Transaction per Month Accounts (i.e. Money Market Accounts)
Ensure that you are not using a limited transaction account (i.e. money market with a six-transaction per month limit). Consult with your financial institution before using a limited transaction per month account. Each bill payment will be considered a separate ACH transaction; therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure that transaction limits are not exceeded. Additional fees may be assessed by the City if payments are declined by your financial institution due to exceeding these limits.
Credit Union Accounts
Please verify with your financial institution that you are using the correct account number for electronic check payments. Sometimes the account number on your check is different than the one needed for electronic check processing. Additional fees may be assessed by the City if payments are returned due to account number errors.
Schedule a payment plan by first saving a payment method (ACH routing transit number and account number).
Check Your Payment Date
Scheduling your payment with the wrong date (specifically the year) does not alleviate penalty, interest, nor late fees. It is your responsibility to ensure that the payment is scheduled for the correct date.
