Ways to Pay City Taxes

  1. Online banking – avoid the long lines at City Hall leading up to the property tax due date by paying online through your bank. Set up the City of Powell River Property Tax as a payee (exact wording varies between financial institutions) and enter your folio number (RBC requires 12 digits, so add 0s in front of folio number). If eligible, the home owner grant can be claimed online by clicking the Electronic Home Owner Grant (eHOG) link at https://tempest.powellriver.ca/tempestlive/ehog/. You will need your folio number and access code.

  2. In person at your bank – do not claim the home owner grant at your financial institution.

  3. By mail – City of Powell River, 6910 Duncan Street, Powell River, BC, V8A 1V4. Payment must be received at City Hall by the property tax due date regardless of the mailing date.

  4. In person at City Hall (6910 Duncan Street) from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays.

  5. After hours – drop cheques in the drop box at the front entrance to City Hall (left side)

City taxes can be paid by cash, cheque or debit card (know your daily limit). Cheques post-dated to the deadline day will be accepted. The City of Powell River does not accept credit cards for property tax payments.

To avoid a 10 per cent penalty, payment and home owner grant applications must be received on or before the deadline day.
