The City of Portage la Prairie has implemented 2021 tax and utility bill payment deferral options for those adversely impacted by the ongoing pandemic:

  • Tax Payment Deferral Option:  For those taxpayers needing extra time to pay their 2021 taxes, payment will be accepted up to Oct 31/21 without penalty and charges.
  • Utility Bill Deferral Option:  For those utility customers needing extra time to pay their bills, any payments due between June 1 and Oct 31, 2021 can be paid by Oct 31/21 without penalty and charges.  Overdue utility bills will continue to be charged to the property’s tax account if outstanding further that one month after they are due.

There is no application process for taxpayers and customers to use these payment deferral options.  We expect only those that need to use these options.
