We are not able to accept any discount payments after the deadline. We also cannot accept any face payments after the deadline. Please see above for Discount, Face, and Penalty periods.
Our office will always include a letter with the returned check indicating why we cannot accept it in its current state. If you have any questions, please contact our office. It is your responsibility to return the check with the requested corrections for your payment to be processed.
Please do not future date your checks as we cannot hold them. Only send a check if it can be deposited.
