Online banking is available for Credit Union customers only using the TelPay service. Your property roll number will function as your account number.
**If you are making payment online, DO NOT choose the Town of Strasbourg as the payee. This will result in your payment being made to the Town of Strasbourg and it will not be processed by the R. M. of McKillop No. 220 and applied to your tax bill. The Town of Strasbourg will consider these payments as a donation from an unknown source as they will have no record of an account outstanding in your name.**
It only takes 3 business days to get set up and approved. Once you’re approved, you can login to your account at www.telpay.ca/webpay at any time to pay an invoice. It’s that easy, and it costs you nothing. (The R.M. has opted to pay the $0.50 transaction fee.)
