Paying filing fees to county or state agencies is a time-consuming process. And time is money. LegalEase makes paying for these governmental services quick and easy, so that you can concentrate on what’s really important to your business.
LegalEase protects you against unauthorized transactions by restricting its use for payments of services provided by state and county agencies. Payments are made with non-negotiable access numbers, rather than “account” numbers, protecting you against the risks and exposure associated with cash, checks, Automated Clearing House drafts and credit cards. Frost owns and operates the LegalEase processing system.
Your LegalEase access number is used to pay a recording or filing fee through any participating agencies. The transaction amount is deducted from your account and electronically transferred to the appropriate agency, expediting the filing process and saving you time and money. An optional “Auto Replenishment” feature allows you to maintain proper funding of your account at all times.
Web-based access allows you to conveniently monitor your available balance and provides the capability to view, print and download up-to-the-minute online reports detailing your transaction activity in pre-set formats or with customized filtering and sorting. To simplify the process or tracing and reconciling transactions, multiple access numbers can be activated for different individuals or offices affiliated with your company.
