The 2020 due date for property taxes is July 2, 2020. In order to provide financial relief to our residents, the last day for payment without penalties is September 30, 2020. This change in penalty date will allow a 90-day extension to pay taxes without late penalties. A 10% penalty will be levied to all accounts with outstanding balances on October 1, 2020. The penalty is also applicable on the homeowner grant portion of your taxes. As City Hall is currently open by appointment only, we encourage you to pay your taxes and utilities online through your financial institution or via telephone at this time. Our customer service team is happy to assist you over the phone or via email if you have any questions. For property tax and utility information, call 604-591-4181 or email If you are unable to find the information you need online or by phone and still need to come to City Hall in person, please call 604-591-4181 to set up an appointment time.

Property taxes are one of the ways the City of Surrey collects revenue to pay for City services. The amount you pay is based on the funds Surrey needs in order to provide City services each year, and your property assessment. We encourage all those who can pay their taxes on time to do so in order to avoid interruptions to City services.
