Important Tax Information
The 2021 Interim tax bills were mailed on February 26, 2021. If you have not received your bill(s) prior to the March due date, please contact our office.
The Interim tax bill will be payable in two installments; March 19th and May 21st, 2021. This bill has been calculated using the 2020 annualized assessment multiplied by 50% of the 2020 applicable tax rate(s).
Payments received after February 15th may not be reflected on your tax bill. Please note that any overdue amounts do not include penalty/interest for March. Please contact our office for a current balance.
Penalty/interest will be applied to all overdue amounts for 2021 taxes and prior years.
Preauthorized payment plan withdrawals will continue as scheduled. Ten (10) month plan and Arrears plan payments will be deducted on the last business day of each month.
If you have any questions regarding your pre authorized payment plan or post-dated cheques, please call (705) 286-1260, extension 501.
We encourage account holders to utilize the payment methods available:
- Cash and debit payments are currently suspended.
- On-line or telephone banking.
- Payment at financial institutions.
- Cheque-by mail or deposit in the drop box. The secure (locked) drop box is labelled and located on the north wall of the Administration building facing Pritchard Lane and the Municipal parking lot. It is accessed from the wheelchair entrance and is at the top of the first ramp.
Absolutely no cash is to be deposited in the drop box.
Property owners are responsible to provide to the Municipal Office written notification of any address change.
Failure to receive your tax bill does not exempt penalty charges from being applied to a tax account.
Your taxes may be paid via pre-authorized payment or telephone/internet banking services of the CIBC, Bank of Montreal, TD Canada Trust, Royal Bank, Bank of Nova Scotia or any Canadian Credit Union. Payment may be mailed to our postal address; if you require a receipt please provide a self addressed, stamped envelope. You may also pay your taxes by debit, cheque or cash in person at the Municipal Office, using the Pritchard Lane entrance.
Please note that if you use telephone or internet banking to pay your taxes, a separate account is required for each roll number. Your account is the 19 digit roll number found on your tax bill that starts with 4616. As we move forward with automatic uploading of payment information, it is even more important that you use the correct account information.
The Township will not be held responsible for any penalty or interest charges resulting from inaccurate account information. Please ensure that you are using the correct 19 digit number, and that each account is paid separately.
If you wish to pay by pre authorized payment, the Township offers the following plans. Forms are available below or at the Township office.
10 Month Payment Plan – February through June, payments are 10% of the previous year’s tax levy. July through November will be adjusted to reflect any increase/decrease in the current year’s total levy. Payments will be withdrawn on the last banking day of each month.
12 Month/Arrears Plan – a pre-approved amount will be withdrawn on the last business day of each month to clear up overdue taxes. Should you wish to use the 12 Month Plan for current tax payments, be advised that any portion of an installment not paid by the end of the month in which it is due will be subject to penalty. This is a set amount and is not automatically adjusted to account for tax increases; it is the owner’s responsibility to monitor their account balance and to contact the tax department to adjust the withdrawal amount should it not be sufficient to cover the levied amounts. Penalty will not be waived for any reason.
Due Date Plan – amounts will be deducted on the due dates as provided on your tax bill.
