Tax and Utility Payments
*NEW* Valemount residents may now make online payments for taxes and utilities using a credit card.
By Credit Card
Property Taxes can be paid online using the service provider PaySimply™.

The Village of Valemount does not endorse third party payment providers and all fees associated are the responsibility of the payee.

At Your Financial Institution
You can pay your property taxes at most financial institutions. Attend your bank in person with your original tax notice. Ensure you retain your receipt for proof of date paid.
Note: Financial Institutions are unable to accept Home Owner Grant (HOG) applications.
Online and Telephone Banking
Most financial institutions offer pay-by-phone or online banking services. Your bank account needs to be set up to conduct online transactions. Contact your bank for details.
How to Pay Using Online Banking
On your bank’s website, log into your bank account and go to “PAY BILLS”. Select “ADD A PAYEE”. In the search bar, enter “Village of Valemount”. Click “search” to view the full list of available payees. The payee name for the Village of Valemount property taxes and utilities varies from bank to bank. Select the payee name that relates to the Village of Valemount property taxes or utilities. You will then be able to enter an account number.
- For online banking purposes, your payee account number for taxes is your roll number which is located in the top left-hand side of your tax notice. Your payee account number for utilities is the number found in the box located beside the “name” box located in the top left-hand side of your utility notice.
- Always verify that the account number set up for your Village of Valemount property tax or utility payee matches the account number found on your current property tax or utility notice before making a payment. If the account number for that payee does not match your account number, update the payee account number with the account number found on your property tax notice, as described above.
- Account numbers are attached to the property, NOT the owner. Please ensure that you are not paying for a property you no longer own, and update your bank records accordingly.
