Property Taxes

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 (Interim Tax Notice) or the 15th of June (Final Tax Notice), please contact our office at 705-653-1900.

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 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 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.

e-Billing has many convenient features and benefits:

  • 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.
  • You are reducing clutter and paper waste.

Pre-Authorized Payments

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

  • Due Date Plan
    This Plan authorizes tax instalment amounts to be withdrawn on specified tax due dates.  Enrolment may begin at any time however, taxes must be paid up to date before the first deduction.

  • Monthly Plan
    This Plan authorizes twelve monthly withdrawals on the 30th of each month, from January to December of each year.  The exception to the 30th of each month is February and this withdrawal will occur on the 28th of February, each year.

    January to May withdrawals are based on prior year taxes divided by twelve.

    June to December withdrawals are based on current-year taxes, less payments made between January and May.

    Pre-authorized payment plan updates occur two times per year following the recalculation of property taxes for the periods January to May and June to December.  Notices are sent to the property owner(s) confirming the amounts for these periods.
