3 ways to pay your Property Tax and Utility Notice on time

Capture2

Property Taxes and Utilities are due July 3, 2018. 

Here are three  ways to pay your notice on time:

1. Online Banking: Property Taxes and Utilities are separate payees.

Utilities:

Payee: District of Squamish Utilities
Account #: 5 digit number

Property Taxes: 

Payee: District of Squamish Property Tax
Account #: 13 digit account/roll number

Please ensure the time stamp (Pacific Standard Time) from your bank is dated on or before the due date.

2. In Person: Cheque, cash or debit (sorry, no credit cards) at Municipal Hall, 37955 Second Avenue, Monday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (closed statutory holidays).

If you plan to pay by debit, check your daily spending limit. You may need to request a temporary increase from your bank. 

3. After Hours Drop Box: Cheque only, do not leave cash in the drop box. 
The drop box is located on the wall to the right of the doors at Municipal Hall, 37955 Second Avenue. 

A late penalty of 5% will be applied after July 3, 2018. A second late penalty will be applied after July 31, 2018.

    Hi. Here is a suggestion. Squamish tax payers should be able to log into tax account and see the balance so that they can pay the balance online on time. Also it is not clear exactly when the payment penalty is applied. At midnight on July 3rd? Does a banking confirmation count as a payment? It should be clear and easy to pay the utility taxes in particular but it is not. Snail mail is passé. Keep on listening and learning. Thanks Nancy

      Hello Nancy,

      Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback. The payment penalty is applied to all payments received after July 3. For example, if a resident were to deposit payment via our after-hours drop box on July 3 at 10 p.m. or midnight, it would not be considered a late payment and a penalty would not apply. If you are paying online through your bank, you would need to ensure the time stamp from your bank is dated on or before the due date.

      Regarding the ability for residents to log in and view their account balance, we are currently implementing a new financial management solution that once complete will result in increased online self-service options. We are working towards providing online viewing of tax account balances and payment processing for residents. Please let us know if you have any questions in the meantime.

      Thanks!
