TBOR no longer accepting paper checks for Annual Dues payments
We hope this message finds you well. We wanted to inform you about an important update regarding our payment methods. As part of our commitment to streamlining processes and enhancing convenience for both our members and our team, we will be transitioning away from accepting paper checks for annual dues payments.
After careful consideration and in alignment with the practices of industry leaders such as NAR (National Association of Realtors) and WY Realtors, we have decided to fully embrace electronic payment methods. This decision is driven by the numerous benefits that electronic payments offer, including improved efficiency, faster processing times, reduced administrative burdens, and enhanced security.
So starting with the 2024 annual dues season, we will no longer be able to accept paper checks as a form of payment. We kindly request your cooperation in making this transition as smooth as possible. Going forward, we encourage you to utilize our electronic payment options to ensure seamless and timely transactions. Our electronic payment methods include:
Credit/Debit Card Payments: We accept payments via major credit and debit cards through our online payment system – Visa, Mastercard and American Express. This option provides flexibility and ease of use.
Electronic Checks: we will accept an electronic check. This method does require a driver’s license. It will ask for the MICR number: it is on the bottom left of a check and identifies the bank branch that it is issued from, the account number of the payer and the number of the account holders check in a consecutive series. From the left, the line displays the following information: the nine character routing number of the bank, the 12 character account number that identifies the payer and the 4 character check number. (Always double check the driver’s license number you input and the complete MICR number before submitting payment)
*enter the entire MICR number along the bottom of your check, leave out any squiggle characters or spaces..ect. Be sure to include the entire MICR number along the bottom of the check – even your check number (even if it has already asked for that somewhere else). Type in EVERY number without spaces.
We understand that changes like these may require some adjustment, and we are here to support you throughout this transition. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding electronic payments, or if you require assistance in setting up your credit card payment, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the TBOR office.
We believe that this shift aligns us with modern industry practices, allowing us to better serve your needs and provide a higher level of service. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work together to enhance our payment processes.
