2023 Property Taxes & Utilities
Have you paid your property taxes and utilities? The District of Elkford’s 2023 Property Tax Notices—and the 2023 Residential Utility Notices—were mailed out in May and payments are due by 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 4, 2023. If you have not received your notices yet, please contact us as soon as possible at 250.865.4000.
Did you know that you can quickly and easily pay your property taxes and utilities through your financial institution’s online banking system? Simply search for “District of Elkford” (or “Elkford taxes” or “Elkford utilities”) and register us as a payee in your online bill payments. To register your property taxes, you will require your property’s roll number (beginning with 517), and to register your utilities, you will require your utility account number (beginning with 001).
You can also pay by visiting the District Office at 744 Fording Drive and paying by debit, cash or cheque. Please note that we DO NOT accept credit cards as a payment method at the District Office. However, we can now accept online payments with Visa and MasterCard through the secure OptionPay System (with applicable third party fees) on our website at www.elkford.ca. Note that all processing fees are charged by OptionPay and are not received by the municipality. Payments made through OptionPay will take two to five business days to be received by the municipality, so please allow for this processing time while making your payment.
A reminder that eligible homeowners across B.C. can no longer apply for their home owner grant through their local municipal office, but instead must apply directly to the Province of British Columbia. Eligibility requirements remain the same. To avoid penalties and interest, you MUST apply before the tax due date on July 4, 2023.
To apply for your home owner grant, or for questions or concerns about the home owner grant, visit www.gov.bc.ca/homeownergrant or call 1.888.355.2700 to speak with a live agent.
