Paying Property Taxes

Tax Payments and Penalties 

Tax notices are normally issued in late May or early June, and the deadline for payment before penalties is July 31 of each year. A penalty of 1% will be added to all outstanding taxes on August 1, September 1, October 1, November 1, December 1. Please note that a penalty of 9% is added on January 1 each year to all outstanding tax balances.
 
As of January 1, 2015, tax receipts will only be mailed upon request. Please contact City Hall at 306-236-3622 or send an email to make arrangements.
 

COVID-19 Update for 2020 

Council passed a bylaw on April 27, 2020 temporarily deferring property tax and utility penalties due to COVID-19. Although your 2020 tax bill will still be published with a due date of July 31, penalties will not start to be added until November 1. The bylaw can be viewed here.   


Making Payments Online

If you are using the on-line banking services of your financial institution, you may want to use it to pay your City utility and tax accounts. We are currently set up to take payments from CIBC, Credit Union and the Royal Bank.

For instructions on setting up your property tax account for online payments, please view this document.

TIPPS (Tax Installment Payment Program) 

Since 2016, we have offered TIPPS (Tax Installment Payment Plan Service), allowing ratepayers to have monthly payments automatically withdrawn from their bank accounts rather than making a lump sum payment. If you are using the TIPPS service, there are no late penalties charged for the monthly installment payments made after July 31. For more information on TIPPS, please view the information sheet and application form below. 

Other Payment Options

Accounts can also be paid through cheque, in person at City Hall, or by interac e-transfer. More information about these payment options is available in this document.

Please Note if you are paying any account by e-transfer it is your responsibility to ensure we have enough information to correctly assign your payment. If you need to send additional instructions for your payment, please do so by emailing payments@meadowlake.ca.
