State Says e-payments Are Up

Do you pay your bills online? The state says the amount of revenue it's receiving electronically continues to go up. State Treasurer John Perdue says the state's e-government program has collected $330 million so far this fiscal year, passing last year's mark of $319 million. Final fiscal 2013 totals will be available in July. The program has been growing annually since taking in $175 million in 2009. As it has since the program's beginning, West Virginia University led all payees with nearly $114 million in e-government transactions as students log onto the school's website and use a credit or debit card to pay tuition and fees.
