Property Taxes Are Coming
Its tax time again. Your property tax notices for 2008 will be coming this month. Payments and completed Home Owner Grant applications, if applicable, must be received by the City of Abbotsford by 5:00 PM on July 2. If you fail to pay your property tax before July 2, 2008 you will have to pay a 5% penalty. Another 5% penalty will be applied to taxes if you pay after September 15.
You can pay your property tax at your bank or credit union, mail or drop off a cheque or pay at the cash counter in the city hall with your bank card or cash.
Don’t forget to complete and return the Home Owner Grant application (if your are eligible) by the due date. Failure to do so on time could result in penalties being applied to that portion of the property taxes. you can complete and submit the Home Owner Grant application form on the front of the tax notice or do it online at city of Abbotsford website. If you make your property tax payments to your bank (monthly with your mortgage payments) its still a good idea to double check with the city and apply for the grant if you are eligible.
For more information you can contact the City of Abbotsford Property Tax Division at 604.864.5522.
