Federal court now accepting credit card payments

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Federal courts in Iowa are now taking plastic.

The Northern District of Iowa is now accepting Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express for criminal payments.

Court officials believe this will make it easier for defendants to pay restitution, fines and other special assessments imposed by the court.

The Cedar Rapids Office recently purchased a new credit card machine. While the system is being tested, the Clerk's Office is asking that any individuals interested in paying their debts by credit card go to the Clerk's office with a photo ID.

If a person has questions about paying their criminal monetary penalties, he or she should contact the United States Attorney's Office at 319-363-6333.
