Residents of Fort Kent Can Now Pay their Property/Real Estate Tax and Utility Payments Online

The Town of Fort Kent is pleased to announce it’s participation in the Maine PayPort Online service; a convenient way for citizens to pay their personal Property/Real Estate Tax and Utility Payments online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Town of Fort Kent already participates in Maine PayPort OTC, an over the counter solution that allows individuals and organizations to be able to pay for any service, fee, license, or product offered by the municipality, using a Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit card. While municipal participation in Maine PayPort is optional, the service has now grown to include over 110 municipalities.

Maine PayPort Online is a service offered by a third party working in partnership with the State of Maine and this municipality. As a part of the service, the designated portion of your payment will be remitted to the municipality on your behalf. The balance funds the operation of this and other Maine.gov online services. Conducting business through Maine PayPort Online is voluntary and the final cost may be higher than using other forms of payment.

Maine PayPort Online service is provided by InforME. InforME has been processing electronic payments for Maine state and local government since 1999. All private customer data is secured according to the most up-to-date and stringent security standards. InforME is CyberTrust certified the industry gold standard for security, and PCI/DSS compliant.

Maine PayPort Online can be accessed through the Fort Kent website http://www.fortkent.org/ or at informe.org/payportonline Citizens who would like more information about the online services that are offered by Fort Kent are encouraged to contact the Town Office at 207-834-3090.
