The City of Pitt Meadows takes pride in providing a high level of service to residents and businesses, and collects revenue from a combination of property taxes, fees and charges. The City has historically had some of the lowest combined tax and utility rates in the Lower Mainland.

Property Taxes are due on the first regular business day after Canada Day. 

Property taxes and the Provincial Home Owner grants are due by July 4.  The Provincial Home Owner Grant application process has changed. Homeowners must now apply directly through the province. For more details, click here

Late Payment Penalty

The Province (Community Charter) requires municipalities to charge a late payment penalty. 

Unpaid taxes or unclaimed Home Owner Grants will incur a 5% penalty charge the day after the due date and an additional 5% penalty charge after August 1. If you are eligible for the Home Owner Grant, you must apply for it each year before the penalty date.

Tax Notices 

Property tax notices are mailed at the end of May or early June. If you have not received yours by mid June please contact the Finance Department by email: It is the responsibility of property owners to pay property taxes by the due date to avoid a late payment penalty, whether or not a bill is received.

A tax newsletter is included with the tax notice and includes information about how to pay, where your tax dollars go, and more.

Property Tax Payment

There are several convenient ways to pay your taxes including:  in-person at City Hall, online or in-person banking , via Canada Post or the City Hall Drop Box.  Find more information about the City’s convenient property tax payment options.
