2018 Property Tax Notices in the Mail

The City of Merritt 2018 Property Tax Notices were mailed out on May 18th and payments are due by 4:30pm on Tuesday July 3, 2018.  Please call us at (250) 378-4224 if you do not receive your Property Tax Notice before June 1st.
 
Your property tax notice included a flyer outlining how to apply online for your Home Owner Grant through the City of Merritt website (www.merritt.ca).  To complete the online application you will need your property roll number and the access code that are printed on the top right portion of your property tax notice.

The flyer also includes information on the financial institutions that accept payment of the City of Merritt property taxes through their online banking sites.

If you are paying your property taxes at City Hall, please ensure you have completed your home owner grant application on the bottom of the tax notice prior to meeting with one of our tax clerks.  The City accepts cash, cheque and debit for the payment of property taxes.  Credit cards are not accepted.

If you are unable to visit City Hall during regular business hours, 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday, excluding holidays, you may use the payment drop box located beside the west entry doors facing the Civic Centre.  Please ensure drop box payments do not include cash.  Include the completed bottom portion of your tax notice along with your payment and any other supporting forms in a sealed envelope.

Any current property taxes not paid by the close of business on July 3rd are subject to a 10% penalty.  Postmarks are not accepted as proof of payment.  Those who are unable to pay their taxes in full can reduce their penalty by paying as much as possible and claiming their Home Owner Grant by the July 3rd due date.

You may qualify for the deferment of your property taxes.  Information on the Province of BC Property Tax Deferment Program can be found at:  http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/taxes/property-taxes/annual-property-t....
