In person or at the ATM
If you pay your taxes in person at your financial institution (either at the counter or through your ATM) and you are applying for a home owner grant, you are responsible for applying for your home owner grant directly with the Province by the tax due date. Please submit your application online by July 4, 2023.
When you pay by phone or online banking, or at your financial institution, your payment will be considered late and subject to penalty if it is not received on the due date, or is future-dated for the next business day. Please keep your receipt for proof of payment date.
Paying by mail
We accept property tax cheques post-dated for July 4, 2023.
Make your cheque payable to the District of North Vancouver and mail it, along with the remittance stub, to the Revenue and Taxation Department.
Please allow adequate mailing time. Payments will be considered to be on time if postmarked on or before the due date. If the postmark is absent or unreadable, the date received will be considered the payment date.
Mail delayed by Canada Post will be considered late and subject to penalty.
Do not mail cash.
Paying at District Hall
The District Hall letter box is open 24 hours a day, and is emptied twice daily. It will also be emptied at midnight on July 4 and September 1.
If paying in person at District Hall, please help us serve you as efficiently as possible. Call or email us in advance if you have questions. We are available to help you by phone from Monday to Friday (8am-4:30pm). You can also email us at any time.

Planning to pay in person using a debit card? Banks have daily spending limits on debit card transactions. Please contact your bank in advance to request a temporary increase if your tax payment exceeds your daily limit.
