COVID-19 Financial Relief Grant

The City’s COVID-19 Financial Relief Grant, a one-time grant of $150 for a single-family home and $100 for a multi-family home, is applied automatically to every private individually owned tax account with a Class 1 Residential designation. The amount at the bottom of your notice is the amount due.

If you do not require the reduction in your property tax bill and wish to decline the one-time grant (i.e. you wish to pay the full amount of your residential property taxes without a $100 or $150 reduction), please send an email with the subject line “Waive Grant” to pmtaxes@pittmeadows.ca. Please include your folio number and the access code from your Property Tax Notice.
