Taxes

Property tax notices were sent beginning of June 2020. Please contact the Office if you did not receive your tax notice within a reasonable time frame.

Town Payment Methods
1. Cash, cheque, or money order. The Town has a secure lockbox available outside the Town Office under the RCMP sign for after-hours payments.

2. Online Banking with RBC, all Credit Unions, BMO, TD, CIBC, and Scotiabank. 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

3. Visa, MasterCard, and Debit. Visa and MasterCard can be called in over the phone. Debit has to be done at the Office.

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