Treasurer’s office encouraging residents to receive bills electronically

For one lucky taxpayer, taxes might be a little easier to pay this year. Simply by signing up to receive their tax bill electronically, Beaufort County taxpayers will be eligible to win $3,000.

PayIt, the Beaufort County Treasurer’s innovative partner in government payment solutions, announced a special sweepstakes for Beaufort County’s taxpayers.

“We have all had something get lost in the mail. When that is your tax bill, it can be a very costly problem,” Beaufort County Treasurer Maria Walls said in a release. “Signing up for e-billing eliminates that worry and, this year, it includes the added bonus of potentially paying for your taxes.”

Signing up for e-billing is easy and can be done in four simple steps.

1. Visit myBeaufortCounty.com or the myBeaufortCounty app on your mobile device.

2. Log in or create an account.

3. Select your Beaufort County properties.

4. Enroll your properties in e-billing.

Beaufort County was the first county in South Carolina to offer electronic billing to its citizens. Newly permitted by state law after Walls worked with state senator Chip Campsen to craft legislation that would give property owners the option to receive their tax bills electronically.

“When taxpayers sign up for e-billing, it is a win-win for the taxpayer and for the county,” Walls said.

“The county spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on postage and stamps to send hard copy tax bills, but when a taxpayer signs up for e-billing, it is at no cost to the county or the taxpayer, and the taxpayer receives their tax bill, as well as payment reminders, conveniently and securely.”

Taxpayers must sign up before Oct. 15 in order to be entered in the sweepstakes. Official sweepstakes rules can be found at Ebilling.MyBeaufortCounty.com. E-billing is available for all property types, which are real and personal property as well as motor vehicles.
