Property Taxes

Paying your property taxes just got a lot more rewarding! Did you know that there are a number of Canadian towns and cities that don’t have the luxury of allowing their residents to pay their property taxes or utility bills with a credit card? Naturally, we wanted to change that. So, we had a team dedicated to onboarding many of the towns and cities across Canada. Now, you can pay your property taxes using your credit card on the Paytm Canada app!

We are focused on providing the best bill payment experience possible in Canada. And, we couldn’t do that without focusing on a big expense like Property Taxes.

So. Many. Rewards.

Why would you want to pay your property taxes through Paytm Canada? Well, for starters your property taxes are probably one of your biggest bills payments, which means that you can collect a lot of points by paying it through our app. Not only will you get Paytm Points, but when you pay a bill using your credit card on the Paytm Canada app, you’ll also rack up credit cards points too! Plus, when you use this hack you can actually triple dip on points.

How To Pay Your Property Taxes Through Paytm

From the App home page, click on the “Taxes” icon. You’ll see a list of providers that you can choose from. If you don’t see your provider, look them up in the search bar. Click on your provider, enter your account number and your bill amount. Then follow the simple steps to add your preferred payment method (we accept everything from a credit/debit cards, bank account and Paytm Cash) to proceed to pay your bill.

Transaction & Points Limits

We have transaction and Points limits in place to keep out fraudulent users, who attempt to abuse the service that we provide. The following transaction limits are in place for paying your bills with Paytm:

Limits 24 hour period 7 day period 30 day period
Number of transactions 5 10 15
Bill payments made using a credit or debit card $3,000 $5,000 $7,000
Bill payments made using a bank account or Paytm Cash $5,000 $15,000 $20,000

 

With Paytm Canada you earn 1 Paytm Point for every $1 you spend on bill payments. However, there are limits on total number of Paytm Points that you can earn depending on what the transaction is for:

  • Utility Bills = 500 points per month
  • Tax Payment = 1,000 points per month
  • Credit Card Payments = 2,000 points per month
  • Tuition = 1,000 points per month
  • Other Bill Payments = 500 points per month

*Please note: the monthly limits reset on the 1st of every month

So, to make the most of paying your taxes through the Paytm app, we recommend that you pay your property taxes in installments well before the due date. For example if you owe $3,000 worth of property taxes in April, we recommend that you should start paying it now in $1,000 installments. This way you can earn 1,000 points every month for 3 months, thus maximizing the amount of points you can earn for paying your taxes. Plus as a bonus, breaking up your tax bills makes its a lot easier to pay. 3 smaller payments is much more digestible than 1 lump sum.

Is any surcharge if I pay my property taxes, credit card payment and utilities through MasterCard?

Hi Jacqueline,
When you use American Express, there is a convenience fee when you pay your Property Taxes. All other payment methods (eg: Mastercard, linked bank account and Paytm Cash) will not incur a surcharge.

7000/ month is too low for property tax

Service New Brunswick is listed, but they say they will not accept PayTM. Can you reach out to them?

In the vancomycin area, property taxes can easily surpass $7000. Can the limits be increased (even slightly) so we don’t have to pay over months?? As well, my property tax bill surpasses $7k so there wouldn’t be room to pay any other bills in June….

Vancouver… Not vancomycin (autocorrect)

Got it 🙂 !

Hi Tom, there shouldnt be a limit for this payment. It may be flagged as the amount is high so our care team will need to see this bill in PDF form to leave a note on your account for future transactions. However, if you are referring to points limits, you can visit this article for more information on the points limits.

I only can get 2000 points maximum for a month for paying credit card ,even though I paid $3000?

Hi Zuojun, yes that is our points limits per month right now. Fore details please press here

Your max points accumulation is way to low to get any decent award
Further, you need to increase the bill payments limit… my typical Visa bill is in excess of 10K per month

I’d like to pay property taxes for Fredericton. All property tax in NB is paid through Service New Brunswick, which is listed as a vendor but the app won’t allow me to set up my property tax as a bill payment.

Hi Jessica, please send us an email at care@paytm.ca. We will take a look at the issue from the backend to see whats going on. Thanks!
