A new kiosk-based system for property tax payment in Detroit, Michigan, will enable residents to pay their taxes in several rates, instead of in one lump sum. In addition to this, payments can be made in cash at one of the 50 kiosk systems located throughout the city. This especially benefits people without bank accounts or credit cards who usually had to go to the city hall in person to sort out the property tax. The kiosks were initially deployed in Detroit in 2016, and they allow for the payment of water bills and sewage costs as well. As both the authorities and citizens were satisfied with the system, it’s being continuously expanded.
Tax payment kiosks across the world are used for various payments including VAT, income tax, inheritance tax, and many other types of transactions.
