West Kelowna tax notices distributed

District of West Kelowna tax notices are being sent through the mail this week to over 13,000 property owners.

Taxes are due by 4:30 p.m. Friday, July 4.

They can be paid through most financial institutions, by mail or courier to 2760 Cameron Road, West Kelowna B.C., V1Z 2T6, or in person at municipal hall from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Those unable to visit municipal hall during business hours can use the drop box located on the wall to the right of the main entrance. Please ensure payment is placed in an envelope, stapled to accompanying paperwork and forms are completed in full. Do not pay by cash in the drop box.

Avoid line-ups by claiming the home owner grant online at districtofwestkelowna.ca. Select Online Services and follow the instructions.

Once you've claimed the grant, you can also pay taxes online by selecting the link to your financial institution and selecting West Kelowna - Taxes as the bill payee.

While efforts are made to create efficiencies during tax season, time delays can be minimized by:

- If claiming a home owner grant in person, ensure the application on your tax notice is completed in full and signed before visiting the tax wicket

- Applying for your home owner grant, regardless of method of payment (i.e. whether taxes are paid through pre-authorized payment plan or by a mortgage company)

- If paying by cheque, fill it out in advance, include your tax roll number, and make the cheque payable to the District of West Kelowna.

Current taxes that are not paid by the close of business on July 4 are subject to a 10 per cent penalty.

If you are unable to pay your full tax bill, you can reduce the penalty by paying as much as possible and by claiming your home owner grant by July 4.

Please note that postmarks are not accepted as proof of payment date.

For more information, call the district tax department at 778-797-8860.
