Taxes

Tax notices will be sent beginning of June 2020. Please contact the office if you did not receive your tax notice within a reasonable time frame.

Due to Covid-19, our office is closed to the public. There are a variety of ways to make payments for various Town-related charges, including taxes, while we are not open.

1. Mail in a cheque or money order to Town of Strasbourg, Box 369, Strasbourg, SK S0G 4V0.

2. Drop a cheque or cash off (in a labeled envelope) at the Town Office lockbox which is located by the front door under the RCMP sign. The lockbox is secure and checked frequently.

3. Online banking payment with RBC, all Credit Unions, BMO, TD, and CIBC (Scotiabank is not included). This method is for Utility and Tax payments only. To set up your online banking, your utility account number and tax roll number (which are found on your bills) function as the banking account number. There are two accounts which have to be set up separately – Town of Strasbourg Utility and Town of Strasbourg Tax. Do not add zeros to the beginning of the account number. Some financial institutions require more digits, so you may need to add zeros at the end of the account number to make it work

4. Phone in a credit card number for us to process (VISA or MasterCard).

5. Interac e-Transfer
Send e-Transfers to Town of Strasbourg’s email address:                 strasbourg@sasktel.net
