Property taxes are the main source of revenue to provide services delivered by the Municipality of Trent Hills.  In addition to collecting taxes for its own purposes, the municipality is also responsible for levying and collecting taxes on behalf of the County of Northumberland as well as the Province of Ontario.

If you have not received your tax bill by the 15th of February or June, please contact our office at 705-653-1900.

Please select a heading from the following menu for further information:

 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.

 Payment Options
 
 Pre-Authorized Debit Payments

The Municipality of Trent Hills has two (2) Pre-Authorized Payment Plans for taxes for your convenience.

Complete and submit the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan (PAP) Application/Agreement to have your property taxes automatically debited from your bank account.  Information about each Plan is outlined below:

Due Date Plan

Tax instalment amounts are deducted on specified tax due dates.  Enrolment may begin at any time however, taxes must be paid up to date prior to the first deduction.


Monthly Plan

Twelve (12) monthly deductions on the 30th of each month*, commencing in November each year.  See example below:


November to May = prior year taxes / 12 

Prior year taxes** = $ 2,400 / 12 = $ 200 per month, November to May ($ 200 x 7 =

$ 1,400)


June to October = current year taxes less payments previously made 

Current year taxes = $ 2,700 

$ 2,700 - $ 1,400   = $ 1,300 / 5 = $ 260 per month, June to October ($ 260 x 5 =

$ 1,300)


Total payments for current year taxes = $ 2,700
