State of Iowa to Accept Dwolla Tax Payments


Dwolla announced Tuesday that it's working with the Iowa state government to accept official payments.

The Des Moines, Iowa, company said it's attempting to use its low-cost network to create savings for both taxpayers and bureaucrats.

"From collecting property taxes online to issuing refunds in real-time, from renewing vehicle registrations with your phone to saving money while paying government contractors, we are working with the state to identify the potential impact Dwolla's real-time, online, and mobile technologies could have on every level of state government," said company spokesman Jordan Lampe in a blog post.

He hinted that, "We've already found one opportunity to save the state and local businesses thousands in fees and administrative costs," but didn't elaborate as to what that opportunity is.

In the meantime, Dwolla says it is working with other states and federal agencies to enact similar systems.
