Property Taxes and Assessment

The interim tax bill contains two installments; the first installment is due at the end of March and the other at the end of May. This amount is calculated based on 50% of the previous year's total taxes billed on the property.   The final tax bill contains two installments and is determined once Council adopts the Township budget and passes the tax rate by-law for the current year.  This final tax bill shows the total taxes assessed on the property for the year less the amount on the interim tax bill. 

Supplementary tax bills may be issued throughout the year and are in addition to the regular tax bill. You may get a supplementary tax bill due to additions, renovations, new buildings or a change to the property.
