It’s easy to make payments through your financial institution if you want to pay online or by telephone banking.

Tax bill:
Search “Bowen” under payee.
Add Bowen Island Municipality - Property Tax as a payee. Use your roll number as the account number.

Water/sewer bill:
Search “Bowen” under payee.
Add Bowen Island Municipality - Utilities as a payee. Use the last four digits of your account number on your water bill.

Once you’re set up, just pay as you would any other bill.

Interac E-transfer
Property tax and utility accounts should not be paid using Interac E-Transfer, as this is not a secure method of transmission. Sending funds through email is vulnerable to security threats, and fraudulent redirection of funds can occur. Bowen Island Municipality will not accept submission of an E-transfer receipt as proof of payment.
Additionally, sending funds through E-Transfer can result in delays in proper application of funds to your account, as it is often difficult to know which account to apply the payment to.
