Haldimand County introduces property tax eBilling, encourages residents to sign up and ‘go green’
Haldimand County is introducing property tax eBilling to its growing list of online services. Residents can now sign up for eBilling at www.HaldimandCounty.ca/ebills/ and get property tax bills delivered straight to their e-mail inbox starting this July.
Residents that sign up will also be the first to receive information on how to set up their online property tax account – another feature that will soon be launched.
The new eBilling service makes it more convenient for residents to access their property tax information and reduces Haldimand County’s environmental footprint by significantly decreasing the amount of paper used.
The move to eBilling will also result in significant cost savings related to printing and mailing.
The introduction of property tax eBilling was made possible through funding provided by the Provincial government through the Municipal Modernization program, which intends to help municipalities find efficiencies and implement new initiatives to digitize, streamline programs and services.
Property tax eBilling is the first initiative to be launched utilizing this funding, and others will be introduced over the coming months. Ultimately, residents will be able to access their property tax information, receive correspondence and make payments from a single point of contact, 24/7.
Digitizing the county’s popular Community Guide/PlayBook and making it easier to navigate program registration information online is another facet of the project that is currently underway.
The Province’s contribution to Haldimand’s modernization projects under the current implementation stream is approximately $94,250.
Residents who wish to learn more about the county’s online services are encouraged to visit HaldimandCounty.ca and explore the options under ‘myHC’.
Residents who need assistance signing up may also call Haldimand County Customer Service at 905-318-5932 or visit any library branch.
