Online banking is currently available for those who bank with Affinity Credit Union and BMO.  Your property roll number will function as your account number.

Additional online banking options are coming soon.

 

**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.**
