I was very surprised, after waiting more than two hours to get a license plate for my lawn-mower trailer, that there is a $2.50 extra charge to pay with a debit card. If you paid with a credit card, it was only $2, with an add-on if the transaction exceeded $500.
There was no explanation that justified penalizing the use of plastic; just pay it. Now in this electronic age, it is well known that few people walk around with any significant amount of cash on their person, let alone use a checkbook. This isn’t just another tax — or is it?
