(1) The state tax commission, in cooperation with the state treasurer, may accept payment by credit card, debit card or other commercially acceptable means, including through an electronic payment processor, from any person making any payment to the state tax commission of taxes or other amounts due under any law administered by the commission. If the payment is made by credit card, debit card, charge card, or similar method, the liability is not finally discharged and the person has not paid the tax until the department receives payment or credit from the institution responsible for making the payment or credit. Upon receipt, the amount shall be deemed paid on the date the charge was made.
(2) The commission may pay, through discount or otherwise, any fee to a financial institution, credit card company or electronic payment processor, for a payment made pursuant to this section from the proceeds of the taxes or other amounts paid prior to any other distribution of the proceeds required by law. The necessary portion of the proceeds collected under this section is hereby appropriated for the purpose of paying the fee.
