 Interim and Final Tax Due Dates

Property owners typically receive two tax bills from the Municipality each year.

Interim tax bills represent fifty percent (50%) of the previous year’s total taxes and are due on the last day of the month in February and April.

Final tax bills represent the balance of the annual year’s taxes and are due on the last day of June and September. 

If the last day of the month falls on a weekend, the due date will be the last business day, prior to the last day of the month.

 Supplementary Tax Bills

Supplementary tax bills are generated as a result of a change to your property during the taxation year.

These changes can include, but are not limited to: new residential homes, new commercial, residential or multi-residential units, changes in tax classes, additions or renovations to buildings and previously exempt properties that become taxable.

These bills follow the Property Assessment Change Notice issued by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). 

MPAC is responsible for assessing the properties and forwarding the information to the Municipality for billing.

In some cases, these bills can span more than one year depending on the information gathered by MPAC.

Supplementary tax bills are in addition to any other tax bills that have been issued. 

Each bill includes the effective date and reason for change.  They are due in one instalment and notice is provided at least 21 days before the payment is due.

e-Billing

e-Billing is when you receive an electronic version of your bill instead of a paper bill. Your e-Bill includes the exact same information as your paper bill, and can be viewed or downloaded in a PDF format.

  • You receive an email notification containing an attachment of your bill.
  • You are able to see your bill faster than if it were sent via regular mail.
  • You can save or print a PDF version of your bill.
