Penalty and Interest Charges
To avoid penalty/interest, your property tax payment must be received by our office on or before the due date.
Penalty and interest charges for late payment are set by Municipal By-Law in accordance with the Municipal Act. Taxes in arrears after December 31 will be subject to monthly interest charges until paid. Penalties and interest must be paid in full before there can be a reduction in the amount of taxes outstanding.
Staff has no authority to waive penalties or interest for taxes.
Change of Ownership or Address Information
If the property has changed ownership, please forward the tax bill to your lawyer to pass along to the new owner or return it to the Tax Office. To prevent misdirected tax bills, please advise the Tax Office in writing of mailing address changes.
Failure to redirect tax bills could still result in penalty and interest charges applied to accounts.
