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 [email protected]. One week's notice is required prior to the 15th day of the month in order to stop the current month's withdrawal.
You may choose to set up automatic debit payments from your financial institution's website to pre-pay property taxes.
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.
