Mortgage Company

If your mortgage company pays the taxes and you are eligible for the Home Owner Grant, BOTH must be submitted by the tax due date.

Many property owner's mortgage payments will include payment of their yearly property taxes. Contact your mortgage company to verify a portion of the mortgage payment is allocated for property taxes and is forwarded to the City. The City is not responsible for errors made by mortgage providers.

Please ensure that your mortgage provider is aware whether or not you are claiming your Home Owner Grant each year and if you will be claiming the Basic or Additional Grant.

Property Tax Prepayment Plan

New applicant

Existing Plan Members

Any outstanding tax account balance must be paid and, if eligible, the Home Owner Grant claimed by the tax due date in order to avoid late payment penalty charges, and to remain on the plan. Overdue tax account balances will result in automatic cancellation of your Tax Pre-Payment Plan.

Cancelling your Plan

Property owners may cancel the plan at any time by completing the Plan Cancellation Form and e-mailing it to taxes@chilliwack.com. One week's notice is required prior to the 15th day of the month in order to stop the current month's withdrawal.

Self-managed option

You may choose to set up automatic debit payments from your financial institution's website to pre-pay property taxes.

Tax Deferment program

Once you receive your property tax notice, you may be able to apply for a low interest loan to pay your current year taxes. Visit the Province of British Columbia's website for information regarding the Tax Deferment Program.
