County launches new online property tax account portal Encourages residents to go paperless

To The Haldimand Press

HALDIMAND—Haldimand residents may now sign up for and manage their online property tax accounts at HaldimandCounty.ca/mytaxes. Property owners who sign up will be able to:

  • view property tax account balances;
  • make payments;
  • set up or change Pre-Authorized Payment Plans (PAPs);
  • look up property assessments;
  • receive correspondence/reminders, and
  • obtain tax certificates – 24/7.

Residents who sign up by July 10 will automatically begin receiving their tax bills via email starting in July. The new online property tax portal makes it more convenient for residents to manage their property tax accounts and – with the gradual switch to eBilling – will reduce Haldimand County’s environmental footprint by significantly decreasing the amount of paper used.

The introduction of this new online property tax portal 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 and streamline programs and services.

Residents and property owners who wish to sign up may do so at HaldimandCounty.ca/mytaxes. Individuals should have a tax bill on hand that shows their roll number, which is required to create an online property tax account. 

Paper billing will continue to be offered, however, residents are strongly encouraged to activate their online property tax accounts and make the switch to eBilling. 

Individuals who do not have access to a reliable internet connection or need assistance creating an account may call 905-318-5932 or visit a myHC kiosk at any Haldimand County Public Library branch.
