Beginning January 1, 2011, Amberley Village will no longer absorb the cost of processing credit card payments. The Village has contracted with a third party provider to process credit card payments and handle the surcharge required by the credit card companies.

The surcharge is 2.75% of the amount charged. Master Card, Visa and Discover credit cards are accepted. Currently, the provider is charging the same amount to process debit card payments. In the near future that will convert to a flat fee for debit cards only.

The credit card option may be accessed through the Amberley Village website, www.amberleyvillage.org. Click on the Resident Services tab on the left side of the page. The first option will be “Make a Tax Payment.” Once you have chosen this option, you will be led through a registration process. You will be asked to enter, among other things, your Tax ID number. Remember, this is the six digit number at the top of this letter. The amount of the surcharge will be calculated for you.
