Prepayment of Property Taxes

Preauthorized Prepayment Plan for Property Taxes
Knowing that many people find one large annual bill difficult, the Town of Qualicum Beach offers a prepayment plan to allow taxpayers to contribute a fixed monthly payment towards their estimated net property taxes for the following year.

Eligibility
In order to participate in the Property Tax Prepayment Plan for 2023, 2022 property taxes must be paid in full and your Home Owner Grant claimed by July 4, 2022.

How to Apply for the Preauthorized Prepayment Plan
Download and complete the application form, and return it with a void cheque to Town Hall via one of the following ways:

  • Mail: Addressed to Town of Qualicum Beach, Box 130, Qualicum Beach, BC, V9K 1S7.
  • Drop box: A mail slot is located at the entrance of Town Hall nearest to the fountain (at 660 Primrose St).
  • Email: Scan the application form and email a copy to cashier@qualicumbeach.com.

You may also visit Town Hall for an application form (Hours: Monday – Friday 9am - 4pm, excluding Statutory Holidays).

How is my Prepayment Amount Calculated?
The maximum monthly prepayment is equivalent to the prior year’s taxes (gross less any Home Owner Grant Claim) divided by the number of months remaining to the month of May of the targeted tax year. For example, if their current year, gross property taxes were $2,300 and they had claimed a $770 Home Owner Grant, their monthly prepayment would be $139 ([$2,300 - $770] / 11), starting in July. If applying later in the year, the monthly calculated amount would increase.

Home owners are also able to select any amount below the maximum monthly amount to pay towards their annual property tax bill.
