The deadline for residents to take advantage of the city’s property tax pre-payment discount program is quickly approaching. 

A discount of about one per cent on the municipal portion of your property tax is available if any payments are made up until midnight on Sunday. 

New this year, the city will not be sending out paper notices to remind residents about the discount program. 

“There would have been paper notice that went out to all of our taxpayers and we eliminated that. A lot of the rationale for that was, as we looked at other cities, we were the last city in Saskatchewan still sending out a paper notice,” said Director of Financial Services Brian Acker. 

Residents will still receive their property tax notice through the mail, typically by the end of May. 

The only information you need to take part in the program is your latest property tax estimate. 

“If you go to the city’s website, there is a portal available where you can determine what that is. For those who aren’t able to use that type of media they can certainly just all the city at 694-4410 and we’d be happy to give them that estimate,” Acker said. 

You can use the following options to make a pre-payment on your property taxes: 

  • In-person at City Hall from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday 
  • Deposit a cheque in the mail slot in front of City Hall 24 hours a day 
  • At your bank or through your financial institute’s online or telephone bill payment services 
  • Regular mail: Payments can be mail to City Hall at 228 Main Street North, Moose Jaw, SK, S6H 3J8 
  • Credit card payments can be made through third-party providers. You can find more information here
