All Michigan Government Offices Now Accepting Credit Cards

Share this on:

Michigan residents can now use credit cards to make purchases at all government offices. Michigan residents needing to purchase services from state government offices don't have to worry about always having cash or their checkbook on hand. They can now use credit cards at any of the state's locations.

On Wednesday, Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land announced that the offices would be accepting MasterCard and Discover as forms of payment. That payment option had only previously been made available for SUPER!Center and PLUS office visitors. Visa can't be used at the offices due to its corporate policy. However, customers can use that credit card to make a payment online, by telephone, through the mail or at self-service stations.

Land said that "we're delighted to expand this convenient option to all customers. It reflects our nonstop commitment to deliver the most modern, time-saving services possible."

Michigan previously didn't allow credit cards due to service fees associated with them, Land's office said.

The service mentioned is an interchange - or swipe - fee. Congress is currently considering an amendment that would limit how much credit card companies can charge.
