Taxes Due July 4th

Taxes must be paid and Home Owner Grants claimed by July 4th or the amounts are subject to a 10% penalty


Tuesday July 4th is the deadline for payment and application for Home Owner Grant. Late payments (and late grant applications) incur a 10% penalty. Your residential Tax Notice includes a password for claiming the Home Owner Grant online. Instructions on how to do this were included with your Notice.

Please make sure that your Home Owner Grant is claimed by July 4th in order to avoid the penalty.

Post-marks are NOT considered the date of receipt. If you pay by mail, please send your payment early. You can include a cheque post-dated to July 4th.

Taxes may be paid by online or telephone banking at most banks or at Town Hall (1809 Beaufort Avenue). Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, except for Monday July 3rd.

If your financial institution pays your taxes they have no obligation to deliver your Home Owner Grant claim to us. It is your responsibility to deliver it to us or make an online claim by July 4th to avoid the penalty.
