Utilities & Taxes

Property Taxes

Property taxes are billed annually and are a combination of the tax rate and the assessed value of the property. Council approved a 0% Municipal Tax increase in 2021.

There are multiple ways for homeowners to pay utility bills. Click here to view payment options. .

 


Paperless Billing Options

Unfortunately the online billing system does not have the capabilities we had hoped it would and we will be removing the system at the end of 2021. We will continue to evaluate options and hope to bring back paperless billing and credit card payments in the future. 

If you signed up for paperless billing, you do not need to make any changes, you will receive a paper bill for next quarter utilities in January 2022 as normal. After December 31st 2021, access to your online account will be deactivated.

The Village of Queen Charlotte offers eBilling as well as credit card payments. This system will be discontinued as of December 31st.
