Online Payment Instructions:

If you have access to online banking through your regular financial institution then you can pay your tax and utility bills on-line. When doing so you must know your account number to avoid any errors.

Each account number should start with the municipal identification numbers. The Municipality of Powassan’s is 49 59.

For example when your tax bill comes in the mail, the top will indicate your account as 49 59 010 001 01000 0000. This number must be typed into your on-line service account, minus the spaces.

When your utility bill arrives it will only indicate 010 001 01000 0000 as your account number. You must then add a “w” to indicate it is a utility account and the 49 59 for the municipality then your stated account number. Therefore, W49590100010100000000 would be typed in for the above account.
