Tax Bill and Payments

Staff is pleased to answer any questions that you may have about your tax bills.  Property owners will receive two tax bills each year.  An interim tax bill is sent out in early March and is generally due in two instalments – by the last business day in March and May.  It is based on 50% of the previous year’s billing and is divided into two instalments. The final tax bill is mailed in early September with two payments being due, one by the last business day in September and November.

Every attempt is being made to improve payment options for taxpayers. The alternatives include:

  • Payment by cheque, cash or debit at the Municipal Office;
