UPDATE: As of November 1st, 2019, Property Taxes bill payments will be charged a 1.75 Credit Card convenience fee and 1.25% Debit Card convenience fee.
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 = 500 points per month
- Other Bill Payments = 500 points per month
*Please note: the monthly points 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.
