Interim tax bills issued

Due dates

Interim tax bills have been mailed and the instalment due dates are March 8 and May 8.   

More than 8,500 properties in our community receive interim tax bills. If we don't receive your property tax payment by the due date, a late payment penalty of 1.25% will be applied on the day after the due date. An additional 1.25% interest will be charged on the first day of each month that you fail to pay your property taxes.

If you haven’t received a tax bill by Friday, February 3, please contact us and we can help. Property owners are liable for property taxes and late penalties, even if you didn’t receive a tax bill. If your mailing address has changed, it is your responsibility to advise the Township in writing.  An address change form is available below and on our Changing your Address page.
