DETROIT — Wayne County Treasurer Eric R. Sabree has introduced a new mobile app that allows people to pay their delinquent tax bills or payment plan installments via a free mobile app that accepts credit cards or checks.
“We are very pleased to offer a mobile app that will give Wayne County taxpayers even greater convenience in paying their tax bills or payment plans,” Sabree said in a statement. “Our alliance with the DivDat Kiosk Network allows us to offer this mobile app at no cost to taxpayers and it is free to use. Anyone with a Smartphone can download the app.”
The mobile app complements the nearly 50 kiosks deployed throughout Metro Detroit.
“We encourage Wayne County taxpayers to pay their taxes on time or to enter into a payment plan,” Sabree said. “My office has gone to great lengths to make paying as convenient as possible. Our goal for 2018 is to have zero owner-occupied homes in the auction, and the mobile app provides yet another payment channel for taxpayers.”
Sabree said the Treasurer’s Office began deployment of delinquent tax collections in August of 2016. Residents can pay their delinquent Wayne County, current city of Detroit taxes, DWSD water bills and DTE Energy bills on the kiosks.
“Taxpayers who use the app will help us reduce the cost of tax collections,” Sabree said. “We are exploring even more ways to use technology to make paying taxes as convenient as possible.”
Anyone can download the DivDat Kiosk Network mobile app by going to their favorite app store.
Type in DivDat and select “get” and download the app and follow simple instructions to use the app for multiple payment applications.
