For one lucky taxpayer, taxes might be a little easier to pay this year. Simply by signing up to receive their tax bill electronically, taxpayers will be eligible to win $3,000.
PayIt, 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 explained. "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 for 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 the State of South Carolina to offer electronic billing to its citizens. Newly permitted by State law after Treasurer Walls worked with State Senator Chip Campsen to craft legislation that would give property owners the option to receive their tax bills electronically.
"When tax payers sign up for e-billing, it is a win-win for the taxpayer and for the County," said Treasurer Walls. "The County spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on postage and stamps to send hardcopy tax bills but when a taxpayer signs up for e-billing, it is at no cost to the County taxpayer; and the taxpayer receives their tax bill, as well as payment reminders, conveniently and securely."
Taxpayers must sign up before October 15, 2019 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.
