WFN extends property tax deadline to September 30

THURSDAY APRIL 23, 2020 – WESTBANK: In a continued effort to provide financial relief for residents and business owners on Westbank Lands amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Westbank First Nation (WFN) Council has passed a resolution to extend its property tax deadline from July 02, 2020 to September 30, 2020, under section 48 of WFN Property Tax By-law.

“The intent is to provide some relief to those who currently do not have the means to pay their property taxes due to the pandemic,” says WFN Chief Christopher Derickson. “However, to assist WFN in maintaining essential services, we are strongly encouraging residents and business owners who can meet the original property tax due date of July 2 to do so.”
