State of New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department Selects PaymentExpress® as New Payment Processing System


Today, Grant Street Group announced that the New Mexico Taxation and
Revenue Department (NMTRD) has selected PaymentExpress® as
its new electronic payment platform. Known as the "Land of Enchantment",
New Mexico is home to over two million citizens, and includes the cities
of Albuquerque, Las Cruces, and Santa Fe.

New Mexico joins many other large government agencies across the country
who rely on PaymentExpress to collect over $5 billion in government
revenue each year. PaymentExpress, an e-payment system designed for the
unique needs of government agencies, will allow the NMTRD to accept all
major debit and credit card brands (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American
Express) for payments online, over the phone (IVR), via mobile or tablet
devices, and at 85 Motor Vehicle Department office locations throughout
the State.

The State selected PaymentExpress following a thorough competitive
procurement process. The NMTRD's Final RFP Evaluation Committee Report
noted that PaymentExpress was selected based on its "significant
relevant corporate experience implementing and operating e-payment
programs ... including Ohio's Bureau of Motor Vehicles, San Bernardino
County, Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector, Sacramento County,
Miami-Dade County Tax Collector, and Broward County Records, Taxes and
Treasury Division," and concluded that PaymentExpress "represent[s] the
best value to the State of New Mexico."

"The addition of New Mexico is a significant addition to our payments
portfolio," said Phil Runyard, Grant Street's Director of ePayments.
"The State's thorough evaluation and ultimate selection of
PaymentExpress is a testament of our track record delivering technically
advanced and secure solutions, and uncompromising customer support. As a
FinTech focused on government, we hone our applications and support to
the unique requirements of government entities, as illustrated by our
references contacted by New Mexico, which all rated Grant Street as
"Excellent in our knowledge and experience," continued Mr. Runyard.

PaymentExpress will support NMTRD tax programs including fines and fees
collected from the Motor Vehicle Division. The implementation will begin
this month, with a scheduled go-live in October 2018.
