Property taxes are due July 2. (Special to the Langley Advance Times)

Where to apply for relief and pay Langley property taxes

Deadline for property taxes is July 2

The pandemic may have cancelled many scheduled events, but one thing that is still moving ahead is property taxes.

Langley City and Township of Langley property taxes are due Thursday, July 2.

“Keeping water flowing, sewers flushing, and other services functioning are certainties that residents want and need. The primary funding that allows for that is property tax revenue,” the Township wrote on its website late May after 2020 property tax statements were mailed.

Although property tax payments can be made in-person, taxpayers are encouraged to use online payment methods to ensure the safety of staff and the community.

As the COVID-19 crisis progressed earlier this year both City and Township councils approved 2020 tax cuts, and there are other relief programs available.

Residents who qualify can apply for the provincial government’s property tax deferral program at gov.bc.ca/propertytaxdeferment.

Homeowners can also apply for the Home Owner Grant to save money on their taxes. Property owners are responsible to apply each year to receieve a tax reduction.

City property owners can apply online at services.langleycity.ca/TempestApps/eHog/login.aspx.

In-person payments for Township taxpayers will be accepted at the Civic Facility on June 29, 30 and July 2. Langley City Hall (corner of Douglas Crescent and 204th Street) is open to accept in-person payments until the deadline.

Most Canadian banks and credit unions can also accept property tax payments.

After deadline City residents will incur a 2 per cent penalty on any remaining taxes unpaid, while Township residents will incur a 1.75 per cent penalty.
