Method Two: Pay For Your Advance Tax Notice Through Online Banking


You can simply add Vancouver Property Tax to your payee list by typing in Vancouver Property Tax or Vancouver in the search bar and select Vancouver Property Tax as your bill payee. Your account number is the folio number shown on your Advance Tax Notice. 

最简单的缴税方式是通过您的网上银行。在收款人查询栏中输入Vancouver Property Tax或者Vacouver,然后选在Vancouver Property Tax作为收款人,接着将先前税单上提供的地税号(Folio)输入至account number一栏,即可轻松缴税。切记别将Vancouver Utilities错选为收款人!!!!!

P.S. Depending on your banks, the payee name might differ. But it should say Vancouver Tax regardless. Remember NOT to select the payee Vancouver Utilities!!!!!

根据您的银行而定,收款人的名字会有所不一,但是无论是哪家银行,收款人姓名中都应该包含Vancouver Tax二字。
