The tax man cometh

The deadline to pay the tax man is looming for Kelowna property owners.

Property tax payments are due by midnight Tuesday, July 3. Residents are reminded to apply for the provincial homeowner grant, if eligible, to help reduce their amount due.

The city of Kelowna has set up several different ways to pay including online and in person:

  • your financial institution: online or telephone banking and in person at a branch
  • City Hall (1435 Water Street): by mail, in person and the 24/7 drop boxes located next to the main Water Street entrance or the Doyle Avenue parking lot exit (no cash please)
  • Parkinson Recreation Centre (1800 Parkinson Way): drop box at the front counter

The simplest way to pay is by making an online payment through your bank.

“Our City website is an online property tax resource for our residents and we’ve made some improvements to provide even more options for property owners,” says City of Kelowna Revenue Supervisor Angie Schumacher. “In addition to applying for the homeowner grant directly from kelowna.ca, which has been available for a few years, we’ve launched Online Billing this year. Property owners can now access their City tax and utility billing information in one convenient location.”

Outstanding taxes after the due date will be subject to an automatic five per cent late payment penalty, with a second five per cent penalty applied on Aug. 8 on amounts owing.

Check the cities website for more information about property taxes, payment options, homeowner grants, deferment program or to register for Online Billing.
