New Online Payment Option for Nebraska State Property Damage

December 11, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 11, 2018--When Nebraska State property is damaged the person responsible for the damage is held accountable and must reimburse the State for the repair costs. In an effort to make this accountability more manageable, the Department of Transportation (DOT) launched a new online payment application.

The new online service mirrors the paper process; however, after the user searches and locates their invoice, the application provides the functionality for making payments electronically. Payment methods include credit card and checking account information which can be used to pay in one lump sum or, when approved by the DOT in advance, make incremental payments.

Customers have long requested an online payment option for State property damage. Now the service is online and mobile responsive. The online application system also removes the laborious task of the collection of debt by the DOT by providing a credit card payment option. Another benefit of the service is its accessibility. An online application is accessible to the users 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week removing any scheduling issues.

“This application allows the Nebraskan citizens the ability to more efficiently manage a difficult circumstance,” said Brent Hoffman, General Manager of Nebraska Interactive. “We all know what it’s like when you weren’t expecting an expense, so we’re very happy we can make the situation better for both partner and citizen.”
