Taxation Overview

2020 Interim Property Tax Due Dates

Due to the circumstances of COVID-19, unpaid property taxes will not incur interest/penalty on April 1st, 2020, May 1st, 2020 and June 1st, 2020.

Property Tax Bills

You will receive two mail outs per year for your property taxes, an Interim Tax Bill and a Final Tax Bill.  Each bill is broken into two installments so in total you will be required to make four payments in any calendar year.  Due dates are always in March, May, August and October.

The Interim bill is mailed out in February and has two installment dates and amounts.  The first installment is due in March and the second installment is due in May.

The Final bill is mailed out in July and also has two installments with the first installment payment due in August and the second installment due in October.

The tax office will accept post dated cheques at any time.  For other payment options click here.

Current Tax Rates

The Municipality sets the new Tax Rates once the budget for the current year has been determined. Your interim taxes are always 50% of what you paid the previous year and divided into 2 payments of March and May of every year. Your final taxes are the adjusted amount once the taxation rate has been determined and also has 2 payments of August and October of every year.
