Implemented in March 2021, myGuilfordCounty made a positive influence immediately in the cities of Guilford County, North Carolina.

Taxpayers have recognized that Guilford County now offers cost-effective payment solutions like those they are accustomed to using in the private sector, with fewer fees for residents than associated with prior payment systems.
