Thursday is the deadline for Regina property owners to have their property taxes in to city hall, with payments due at 11:59 p.m.
Deborah Bryden, the manager of property tax and administration for the City of Regina, said that residents who are late paying will face a penalty.
“There is a penalty of 1.25 percent added to the current taxes.” Bryden said the penalty would be added for every month that the payment is late.
Residents will also be paying a bit more than they did last year after rates went up a total of 3.3 per cent.
“Two-point-three is a general tax increase, plus a one percent increase that’s dedicated to the ongoing residential road renewal program.” Bryden said.
She noted for those who want to pay their taxes in person the city has services available.
“The downstairs main floor city hall is open till 5:30 to help accommodate people who need to come inside.”
A drive-thru kiosk was also available this week, but it closed at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday.
There is a 24-hour deposit box located on the east side of city hall where you can drop off a cheque with your payment stub.
You can also pay your property tax online if you have access to online banking services. You can add your tax bill in the payee section as Regina tax and an online form will ask you to type in your eight-digit account number found in the upper left-hand corner of your bill and on your tax payment stub.
