The 2012 PROPERTY TAX NOTICES have been mailed out and any property owner who has not received their notice should contact the City Office by phone at 250-362-7396, by fax at 250-362-5451 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be advised that NEW OWNERS are responsible for unpaid taxes.
The DUE DATE for paying the 2012 taxes is 4:00 p.m., Tuesday, July 3, 2012. After that date, a 10% penalty will be added to all unpaid taxes INCLUDING unclaimed Homeowner Grants. Postmarks are not accepted as date of payment. If you are unable to pay your 2012 taxes prior to the due date, if eligible, you should apply for the Homeowner Grant to avoid penalty on that portion of the taxes.
Property owners can claim their Homeowner Grant online, visit the City’s website at www.rossland.ca.
Property Owners with mortgages are responsible to see that they claim their Homeowner Grant before the tax due date, even though their mortgage company pays their taxes. Tax Prepayment Plan participants are also reminded to claim their Homeowner Grant before the tax due date and pay any remaining payable amount.
The City accepts cash, debit card, cheques and post-dated cheques at the City Office. You can pay your property taxes using internet banking or telephone banking, please contact your financial institution for more information. If paying property taxes by internet or telephone banking, your eleven digit roll number that begins with 229 is your account number and please allow 5 business days for your payment to be processed.
Tax amounts outstanding on July 4, 2012 will be subject to a 10% penalty
