Tax Information

Changes to Property Assessment Appeal Deadlines

For the 2017 tax year, property owners will have 120 days from the Issue Date of their 2016 Property Assessment Notice to file a Request for Reconsideration (RfR). The historical March 31st RfR deadline does not apply for the 2017 tax year. The Issue Date and the unique RfR deadline are included on every Property Assessment Notice.

Spring Dates

The 2017 Interim tax bills will be mailed on February 24th, 2017. If you have not received your bill(s) prior to the March due date, please contact our office.

The Interim tax bill will be payable in two installments; March 24th and May 19th, 2017. This bill has been calculated using the 2016 annualized assessment multiplied by 50% of the 2016 applicable tax rate(s).

Payments received after February 13th may not be reflected on your tax bill. Please note that any overdue amounts do not include penalty/interest for March. Please contact our office for a current balance.

Property owners are responsible to provide to the Municipal Office written notification of any address change.

Failure to receive your tax bill does not exempt penalty charges from being applied to a tax account.

 

Final Tax Bills

The 2016 Final Residential tax bills will be mailed on June 3rd, 2016. If you have not received your bill(s) prior to the July due date, please contact our office.

The final residential tax bill will be payable in two installments; July 22nd and September 16th, 2016. This bill was calculated using the 2016 assessment multiplied by the 2016 applicable tax rate(s), less the interim billing amount.

Payments received after May 24th may not be reflected on your final tax bill.  Please note that any overdue amounts do not include penalty/interest for June or July. Please contact our office for a current balance.

The Final Commercial/Industrial/Multi-residential tax bills are anticipated to be mailed in August.   Bills with both commercial and residential assessments will be mailed together at that time.

Property owners are responsible to provide to the Municipal Office written notification of any address change.

Failure to receive your tax bill does not exempt penalty charges from being applied to a tax account.

Payment Options & Form

Your taxes may be paid via pre-authorized payment or telephone/internet banking services of the CIBC, Bank of Montreal, TD Canada Trust, Royal Bank, Bank of Nova Scotia or any Canadian Credit Union. Payment may be mailed to our postal address; if you require a receipt please provide a self addressed, stamped envelope. You may also pay your taxes by debit, cheque or cash in person at the Municipal Office, using the Pritchard Lane entrance.

Please note that if you use telephone or internet banking to pay your taxes, a separate account is required for each roll number. Your account is the 19 digit roll number found on your tax bill that starts with 4616. As we are now using automatic uploading of payment information, it is even more important that you use the correct account information. Any corrections due to incorrect account information will be charged a $25.00 administration fee.

The Township will not be held responsible for any penalty or interest charges resulting from inaccurate account information. Please ensure that you are using the correct 19 digit number, and that each tax account is paid separately.

If you wish to pay by preauthorized payment, the Township offers three plans. Preauthorization Forms are available for download below or at the Township office.
