The 2015 property tax notices have been mailed out and the City of Rossland advises anyone who has yet to receive their notice call the city office immediately.

The deadline for paying property taxes is July 2 at 4 p.m.. Once this date has passed, a 10 per cent penalty will be added to all unpaid taxes including unclaimed homeowner grants.

Should your file not be received by the deadline, postmarks will not be accepted as the date of payment.

The city advises should you not be able to make your payments in time, if eligible, residents should apply for the homeowner grant to avoid penalty on that portion of the taxes.

Property owners can claim their homeowner grant  online by visiting 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, however credit cards are not accepted.

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. It is advised that residents allow five days for processing the request.

New owners are held responsible for any unpaid taxes.

Anyone who has yet to receive their notice or has questions about the process can contact the city by phone 250-362-7396, fax 250-362-5451 or email at finance@rossland.ca.
