RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider termination of contracts with Profit Stars and Gov-Pay, with notice effective April 30, 2014; authorize execution of contract with Collector Solutions, Inc., for credit card, online credit/debit, and e-checks, for Tax Office customers effective May 1, 2014. 
BACKGROUND

The Tax Office has been searching for a way to simplify payment of taxes for the citizens of Nueces County.  Rather than having three vendors, the Tax Office has found one vendor, with reasonable rates to provide all of these services.  The proposed vendor, Collector Solutions, Inc., not only can provide all services, they also have the lowest cost to the taxpayer.

DISCUSSION

For credit card transactions, the new proposed convenience fee is 2.35%, with a minimum of $2.00.  This is cheaper than the current rate of 2.5% with a minimum of $3.00.

For debit card transactions, the proposed convenience fee is a flat rate of $1.50.  The current debit card rate is 1.95%, with a minimum of $3.00. 

The proposed agreement will provide for FREE e-checks.  Currently they are $2.00.
