The Municipality generates two tax bills annually.
INTERIM TAX BILL due dates are: March 15th and May 15th. As per legislation, the interim tax bill is based on 50% of the prior years' taxes.
FINAL TAX BILL due dates are September 15th and November 15th. The final bill is directly affected by the provincial government through Bill 79, the provincial government bill regulating capping adjustments on commercial/industrial and multi-residential property classes
A 1.25% penalty will be added the day following the due date and the first day of each month thereafter to December 31st. After December 31st, interest will be at 1.25% per month or portion thereof until paid, as legislated under SECTION 345 of The Municipal Act, RSO 2001.
Payments are applied first to any penalty and interest with the balance of payment applied to the oldest year’s tax amount. Failure to receive a tax notice does not relieve the taxpayer from payment of taxes or penalty for late payment. The Municipality is not responsible for bank or postal processing delays. Please allow enough processing time for the payment to be received. A $5.00 charge will apply for tax bill reprints.
• Internet/Telephone banking (Please use entire roll number starting with 3418 without any spaces or decimals when setting up this bill through your bank)
• Mail (cheque or money order only). Post-dated cheques are accepted. Please ensure that payment is mailed in sufficient time for our office to receive it prior to the due date.
