Trust Account

A trust account is a convenient method of payment for motor vehicle transactions. The trust account operates like a traditional checking account. Funds are deposited into the account and motor vehicle fees are deducted as transactions are processed at the Tax Collector’s office. Establishing a trust account eliminates the need for couriers to have a check or cash on hand.

To open a trust account, please submit the completed application via email to: Holding Account Balance Requests: holdingaccounts@hillstax.org.  Statements showing your account activity and balance are emailed upon request.

To close a trust account, submit a request on your company letterhead signed by an authorized representative. The request must include the representative’s printed name and contact information. A check for the remaining balance will be mailed to the address indicated on the account unless an address correction is included with your request.
