Late Payment Charges
Property taxes are the primary source of revenue that funds the delivery of municipal services.
Non-payment of property taxes is subject to two (2) separate late payment charges as follows:
A penalty of 1.25% is added to your tax account
the day after an installment payment is due.
For example: Your tax installment of $1,000 is due February 23rd. A penalty of $12.50 is applied to the tax account on February 24th if payment is not received by end of business day on February 23rd.
Interest is charged at a rate of 1.25% on any taxes not
paid in a previous month. Interest is not calculated on interest or
penalty previously charged.
For example: As of March 30th total outstanding taxes on your account is $3,000 (exclusive of any previous penalties or interest). A penalty of $37.50 will be added to the account on April 1.
Reminder notices are mailed out to ratepayers eight times per year.
Late payment charges will not be waived once charged unless there is an administrative error or overcharge. Should you subsequently remit payment for taxes, your payment will be applied first to any late payment charges then to the taxes which will leave a balance of tax owing if you do not remit the full amount outstanding. Any balance owing will continue to attract late payment charges until it is paid in full.
Failure to receive a tax notice DOES NOT relieve the ratepayer from the responsibility of payment of taxes or from liability for penalty or interest on late payments. If you do not receive a tax bill by late January or late June, please contact the Tax Department.
Please Note: A $25.00 administration fee will be charged
on all non-negotiable cheques returned by our bank.
