Statement and Demand for Taxes

Current taxes are due and payable, without penalty, by October 31.  PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED IN THE MUNICIPAL OFFICE ON OR BEFORE OCTOBER 31 IN ORDER TO AVOID PENALTY.

When paying by mail, telephone or internet banking, it is your responsibility to ensure your payment reaches the Municipal Office on or before the due date. Please allow 3-5 business days for payment to be received at the Municipal Office. The Municipal office only accepts payment by cash or cheque.  We do NOT accept credit or debit card payments. 

PENALTIES of one and one-quarter percent (1 1/4%) will be added on November 1st and on the first day of each month thereafter, until paid.  Penalties imposed and remaining unpaid at the end of the year are added to the tax arrears and penalties will accumulate on the balance. Lands in arrears for more than one year will be subject to tax sale. Arrears that are shown on your tax bill are subject to further penalties. Post-dated cheques will be accepted. 

Receipts will no longer be forwarded by mail unless requested with payment. Receipts will be available to pickup, if required, at the Municipal Office. Your cancelled cheque may serve as receipt for payment. Supplementary tax notices are only forwarded to the owner. The owner is responsible for forwarding that notice to their financial institution.

If you have any questions regarding tax information or arrears payments, please contact the Municipal Office.

Tax and Utility Payments

Payments can be made through telephone or internet banking.  Please allow 3-5 business days for payment to be received at the Municipal Office.  For ratepayers convenience we also have a drop-off box located at the outside of the office.

Ownership or Address Change

The property owner’s name and address which appears on the enclosed bill is in accordance with the latest information which has been made available to the municipality. If, however, any ownership change has since occurred, please forward the enclosed bill to the current owner or return it immediately to the municipal office with an explanation.

It is important that the office be advised promptly of any change of ownership or mailing address.  It should be noted for future reference that failure to receive a bill does not excuse an owner from responsibility for payment of taxes nor relieve that owner from liability for any late payment penalty.
