This feature allows for property owners to elect to receive an email notification when real property correspondence becomes available. Billing notices include the real property tax bill, public space above/below ground bills, special assessment property tax bills, tax sale notices, and the property tax bill (possessory interest). This does not replace the mailing of physical notices.
