Taxes Paid With Your Mortgage

Often, after a final billing a mortgage company will re-adjust the tax payment portion of the mortgage to account for either a surplus or deficit in your mortgage tax account. We would like to remind you that this adjustment is not necessarily always because your property tax has increased or decreased from the previous year but simply, for various reasons, because the mortgage company was not originally collecting enough on a monthly basis or too much on a monthly basis.

If you have questions with respect to the tax adjustment on your mortgage account it is always a good idea to contact your mortgage company first. They should be able to provide the primary cause behind any payment adjustments.

Penalty and Interest Charges

To avoid penalties or interest charges, your property tax payment must be received by our office on or before the due date.

Penalty and interest charges for late payment are set by Municipal By-law in accordance with the Municipal Act. Taxes in arrears after December 31 will be subject to monthly interest charges until paid. Penalties and interest must be paid in full before there can be a reduction in the amount of 1.25% taxes outstanding.

Change of Ownership or Address Information

If your property is changing ownership, please forward the tax bill to your lawyer to pass along to the new owner or return to the Municipal Office.

To prevent misdirected tax bills, please advise the Municipal Office in writing using this Notice of Name Address Change Form.
