Property Taxes

The Township issues two tax bills per year. 

The interim bill is mailed in mid-January of each year with installments due in February and March.  The interim tax bill is based on 50% of the previous year's taxes bill.  For example, if your total 2021 taxes were $5000.00, the interim tax bill will be $2500.00 and your installment amounts will be $1250.00 for February and March.


The final bill is mailed in mid-June of each year with installments due in July and August.  If you are on a payment plan, you will receive your amended payment plan schedule in June.

Unfortunately, these tax bills do not say "DO NOT PAY" so if you were previously on any payment plans, you do not need to reapply. These plans include the PAP 15th of the month, PAP last business day of the month (from February to November) the ATIW 2 pay plan (payments due on the March installment for the interim tax bill and the July installment for the final tax bill) and the ATIW 4 pay plan. These payments will automatically come out on the installment due dates of February & March (interim) and July & August (final).

Please note the 2022 final tax bills have been mailed.  The installment due dates are JULY 26, 2022 & AUGUST 26, 2022.

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:

Penalty

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 25th.  A penalty of $12.50 is applied to the tax account on February 26th if payment is not received by end of business day on February 25th.

Interest

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.
