How do I get a receipt for property taxes paid?
 
A: If you require a receipt, include your entire tax bill when paying by mail along with a self addressed stamped envelope.  The bill will be stamped “paid” and mailed back to you. There is no charge for this. If you require a duplicate tax bill, a  fee will apply.  Please see our Fees and Charges Bylaw here.

Interest is applicable on any outstanding balance.  It is calculated at 1.25% on the first business day of each month.  Staff does not have the authority to waive penalty or interest.
