Notes from City Hall
Property Tax Deadline
Property Tax Notices have been mailed to all City of Kimberley property owners on record. The deadline for payment of your 2019 property taxes is July 2 at 4:45 p.m., after which time a 10% penalty will be added to any unpaid current year taxes. If you haven’t received your Tax Notice yet, please contact City Hall at 250-427-5311 or [email protected] and request that a copy be forwarded to you.
Payment of your property taxes can be made by mail, in person at City Hall, by phone or internet banking, or at most financial institutions. Cheques postdated to July 2 will be accepted at City Hall in advance of the deadline. If paying by mail or electronic methods, please allow time for your payment to arrive at City Hall by the deadline. Post marks on mailed remittances will not be considered as date of payment. Receipt of electronic payments will be recorded as of the date and time the funds are posted to the city’s bank account and not when the payment is transmitted by your financial institution.
Please remember to either complete the Home Owner Grant application that is attached to the bottom of the Tax Notice and remit it to City Hall, or complete the online application to claim the Grant. A 10% penalty will be applied to any Home Owner Grant amounts not claimed by the deadline of July 2 at 4:45 p.m.
