As of 2019, TGFOA will no longer accept physical checks mailed to the Treasurer. We have implemented a new payment software to accept electronic check payments.

If you are paying the registration with a check, you will need to complete the registration form and choose the “Invoice Me” option for your payment method.  Once the form has been submitted, you will receive two emails.  The first is an email to pay online with a credit/debit card, and the second is an email with the link to process the check payment online.
