A recent kiosk installment at the Redi-Mart Supermarket in Hampton is going to make life a little easier for Carter County residents who don’t want to go to the courthouse to renew their car tags, locate and pay property taxes, and pay court fines.

This past Friday, Carter County Mayor Patty Woodby joined with County Clerk Mary Gouge, Trustee Randall Lewis, and Circuit Court Clerk Johnny Blankenship in announcing the new opportunity for the residents.

The kiosk will allow more access to taking care of the aforementioned services as the kiosk will be available during regular business hours at the store.

Those hours are Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. and on Sundays from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m.

This is the first of two kiosks that have been purchased as the second location is yet to be determined according to Mayor Woodby.

Customers can renew their car tags by scanning their driver’s license or their current registration to search for their vehicle. Once selected, the customer can submit their payment via credit card.

The renewal decal will print-on-demand at the end of the transaction.

Customers can locate their property taxes by searching for their bill by name, address, or bill number.

Once selected, the customer can select the record and submit their payment via credit card. A receipt is printed at the end of the transaction.

Customers can input their name, case information, and the amount they wish to pay, and submit their payment via credit card. A receipt is printed at the end of the transaction.

Tags can still be renewed in three other methods including in person at the Carter County Clerk’s Office, online at tncountyclerk.com, or by mailing them to the clerk’s office.

Other payments can be made as follows:

— Property tax payments can be made in person at the Carter County Trustee’s Office, online at tennesseetrustee.com, by calling the automated phone system at 877-768-5048 or by mailing them to the Trustee’s Office.

— Court Fees can be paid in person at the Carter County Circuit Court Clerk’s Office, online at courtfeepay.com, by calling the automated phone system at 866-658-0845 or by mailing them to the Circuit Court Clerk’s Office.

The mayor said that the kiosk brings an opportunity for citizens to renew in a safe, contract-free, user-friendly payment solution for the residents of Carter County.
