Cuyahoga County Residents Will Be Able to Pay Taxes Online Through U.S. Bank E-Payment Service

CLEVELAND, Jan 6, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB)

U.S. Bank and the Cuyahoga County treasurer's office have partnered to provide the residents of Cuyahoga County a more convenient method for making County payments. The system allows real estate tax payments to be made via the Internet to Jim Rokakis, Cuyahoga County treasurer.

Using the U.S. Bank E-Payment Service, residents of Cuyahoga County, Ohio can pay their real estate property taxes online directly through the Cuyahoga County Web site at www.cuyahoga.oh.us. U.S. Bank has served as the custodian of securities in the Cuyahoga County portfolio for the past four years.

"We have enjoyed a successful relationship with U.S. Bank for more than four years and are very excited about our expanded partnership," said Rokakis. "The E-Payment Service is one more way the treasurer's office is making it more convenient for the residents of our county to make their payments to us."

After receiving and reviewing their bills, residents will have the ability to sign onto the Cuyahoga County Web site and select a 'payment' option. Residents will then provide specific information about the type of payment they are making and submit their payment direct to the County electronically, without the need to write a check and mail it to the county offices. This electronic payment option is all done in a safe, secure Internet environment, and without the need to leave their homes.

According to Caren Galloway, vice president and regional manager for U.S. Bank Government Banking, "The U.S. Bank E-Payment Service is a one of the newest forms of electronic payment applications available to business organizations. The decision by Cuyahoga County to employ this program, and the efficiencies that it creates for the county, signifies a win-win for both the county and its residents."
