Tax bills are mailed twice a year, covering the period of April 1st to March 31st annually. The first bill is mailed in April at a time when Council has not yet set its tax rates. The bill is calculated using your current assessment value which is then multiplied by the previous year's tax rate x 50 percent.
In August you will receive your second bill. By this time Council will have set the tax rates and the total taxes due for the year are calculated. Any payment made in the April bill will be deducted from your August bill.
Avoid Interest Charges! Even if you pay today, the Municipality may not receive your payment today. The transfer will typically take place within three to six days. However, you may encounter additional delays. Please contact the third-party service provider for more information. The Municipality may charge you penalties or interest or both if your payment is late. You are responsible for making sure the Municipality receives your payment by the payment due date. If you are using a third-party service provider, you must clearly understand the terms and conditions of the services you are using. Also, links to other websites, or references on this website to products, services, or publications other than those of the Municipality, are provided only for the convenience of Municipality website users.
