Bars and restaurants can now go online to pay Allegheny County's 7 percent tax on alcoholic beverages.

The online payment system is available on through the county treasurer's website. The payment system is secure, complies with government regulations and will save paper, Treasurer John Weinstein said in a statement Monday.

The treasurer's office mailed instructions explaining how to use the online option to bar and restaurant owners.

Of the roughly 2,000 bars and restaurants in Allegheny County, 29 were delinquent on their drink tax payments as of Jan. 31, according to the treasurer's office.
