Property owners are responsible for payment of their annual property taxes by the due date, whether or not they receive a property tax notice.  Contact the Finance Department if you have not received your property tax notice by the second week in June.

The Municipality has no authority to either waive or modify these penalty amounts.  It is a requirement of the Local Government Act that these penalties be added. Click here for the provincial government site for more information.
