IMPORTANT - Terms & Conditions
By checking the "I accept the Terms and Conditions" checkbox on the “Review Your Payment Details” screen you authorize your bank to debit your specified account for the amount of your payment and for the convenience fee, if applicable. The convenience fee will appear as a separate transaction on your monthly statement.
Retain your confirmation number. However, a confirmation number alone does not ensure your payment will process correctly if you do not provide accurate information or if you do not have sufficient funds.
You are solely responsible for providing accurate and complete information. If your payment cannot be completed for any reason, including input error of your account number or if you do not have sufficient funds, you are still liable to make a timely payment to avoid penalties and interest. Understand that additional fees and penalties may be collected to the extent of applicable law.
Third Party Vendor
The County of Merced contracts with a third party vendor to accept credit card, debit card, and e-check payments on our behalf over the internet or through our Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system. The vendor is bonded and partnered with the major credit card companies. Your transaction is securely guarded and county personnel do not have access to your personal card or banking information.
