Oct. 19, 2001 – Business people now can pay V.I. license fees and/or penalties by plastic.
Licensing and Consumer Affairs Commissioner Andrew Rutnik inaugurated his department's new procedure Wednesday. Visa and MasterCard credit cards and most local debit cards can be used.
St. Croix real estate broker Jan Hanley was the first to renew her business license using her Visa credit card. "I’ve been waiting for this for 24 years," she said, calling the new process "a welcome change for the business community." She predicted that "renewing will go much smoother now."
Rutnik expressed appreciation to his staff, the Finance Department and Banco Popular "for assisting with this endeavor."
And there's more to come, according to a release from the Licensing and Consumer Affairs Department. It said Rutnik expects that within a month the public will be able to renew business licenses online at the DLCA web site, again using credit or debit cards.
In addition to Visa and MasterCard credit carts, the department accepts all debit cards except those of Chase Bank and Scotiabank, the release stated.
For further information, call the DLCA Licensing Division at 774-3130 on St. Thomas or 773-2226 on St. Croix.
