Property Taxes are Due July 2

by Sarah Rossi |

COQUITLAM, B.C., May 27, 2019 – Property tax notices were mailed to Coquitlam households last week, and the deadline for payment is Tuesday, July 2, 2019.

Property taxes are the City’s main source of revenue to pay for services, such as roads and traffic control, parks and recreation facilities – including pools and ice rinks, public safety services, such as police and firefighters, and many projects and programs that help make Coquitlam a great community.
