TAX INSTALLMENT PAYMENT SERVICES

Monthly property tax payments can be easily made through the Town’s Pre-Authorized Payment Plan. This program allows property owners to make automatic monthly payments towards the following year’s taxes. To subscribe to this service, please complete the form below and submit it to the finance office with a cheque marked “void”.

INTEREST ON PREPAID TAX INSTALLMENTS

Regardless of the payment method, interest is credited to your account in the same way. Beginning in August each year, the Town will begin paying monthly interest on your pre-payment account balance. The rate used is 2.5% below prime. This interest is considered a tax discount by the Canada Revenue Agency and is tax-free to you.
