Property Tax Payment Options

  • Online - Use your bank's online bill payment service. Add the Town of Sidney as a new payee if you have not paid using this method before. Helpful Tip - Try searching for us as just "Sidney", then select the appropriate payee for property taxes. Use your property folio number, found on your property tax notice, as the account number.

  • By Mail - Cheques and bank drafts are accepted by mail. Please send to:
    Town of Sidney
    2440 Sidney Ave
    Sidney BC V8L 1Y7
    To avoid penalty, mail must have a legible post-mark dated no later than the due date. 

  • At Bank - Property taxes are payable in person at most financial institutions.

  • At Municipal Hall - 2440 Sidney Ave, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday. We accept cash, cheque and debit (up to your daily limit). Cheques may be post dated to the due date. There is also a drop-box located at the main entrance to Town Hall available 24/7; please do not deposit cash in the drop-box.
Regardless of how your taxes are paid, you are strongly encouraged to apply for the Home Owner Grant directly with the Town of Sidney.

TAX INSTALLMENT PAYMENT SERVICES

Monthly property tax payments can be easily made through the Town's Pre-Authorized Payment Plan. This program allows property owners to make automatic monthly payments towards the following year's taxes. To subscribe to this service, complete an authorization form available from the finance department at the Town Hall and submit it to the finance office with a cheque marked "void".

INTEREST ON PREPAID TAX INSTALLMENTS

Regardless of the payment method, interest is credited to your account in the same way. Beginning in August each year, the Town will begin paying monthly interest on your pre-payment account balance. The rate used is 2.5% below prime. This interest is considered a tax discount by the Canada Revenue Agency and is tax-free to you.
