Are You a New Home Owner?
If you purchased property in Mission in 2013, you need to be familiar with your property tax obligation as recorded in your Purchaser’s Statement of Adjustments (contact your Lawyer or Notary for details). If the property tax notice is in the name of the previous owner or you have not received a copy of the notice, please visit the Municipal Hall and bring your certified Land Title Registration Number (Form A – Freehold Transfer Form). This form will verify ownership allowing you to claim the Home Owner Grant (if eligible).
Payment methods accepted at the Municipal Hall are cash, cheques, post-dated cheques or debit cards only (No credit cards accepted). If paying by debit card, you may have a daily and/or per transaction limit on your account. Please check with your financial institution for any limits that apply to your card.
For your convenience, there is a secure 24 hour drop box located at the south entrance (main doors) of Municipal Hall. NO CASH PLEASE! You can also drop off payments and/or Home Owner Grants at the Leisure Centre Receiption (located at 7650 Grand Street) during regular business hours.
