No extensions provided by the district for property tax payments

Taxes are due July 2.

For Vanderhoof residents, property taxes are due July 2 by 4:30 p.m. and no extensions are being provided to homeowners.

Lori Egli, CAO of the district, did not respond to a question about the district’s plan if a large number of residents couldn’t pay their property taxes on time.

Some major cities in B.C. including Vancouver and Surrey have extended property tax deadlines to September. However, communities close to Vanderhoof such as Fort St. James and Prince George have not provided any further extensions.

Vanderhoof homeowners can either pay online, via mail or in-person.

For online payment, only credit cards can be used and the District states on its website that residents need to give it five days for the payment to be processed.

If you are sending a transfer from your financial institution, the district states that it will take three business days for processing.

In terms of the mail option, cheques must be received by the municipal office latest by 4:30 p.m. on July 2.

Lastly, for the in-person option, homeowners can call the district office at 250-567-4711 and pay by electronic fund transfer.

Cheques can be left in the drop boxes after hours at the main office entrance of the municipal office. Cash will not be accepted in the drop box.

And property taxes can also be paid at the municipal office Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. excluding holidays.
