Pay your tax account

Last updated February 29, 2024

Have you received your annual municipal tax account? You can pay it in one or two instalments. Read on to find out how and when to pay your tax account.

Receipt of your invoice

Every year, tax accounts are sent out at the end of January to all owners listed on the property assessment roll.

Payment of your invoice

Factor in two business days before the actual due date, to give us time to process your payment and credit your account.

Due dates for 2024

First instalment: March 1, 2024
Second instalment: June 3, 2024

The fees for any instalment paid after the two official due dates are calculated on a daily basis at the following monthly rates: 0.75% (interest) and 0.41% (penalty).

Paying in one or two instalments

If your total account is $300 or more, you can pay it in one or two instalments without any interest charge or penalty.

If your tax account is under $300, you must pay it in full by the first instalment deadline.

Paying in more than two instalments

If you decide to pay your tax account in more than two instalments, you will be charged interest and penalties.

See the back of your tax notice for a calculation of the monthly instalments, including the extra fees, if you plan to pay in 6 instalments, from March 1 through August 1.

If you decide to pay in six instalments, you don’t have to let us know. You’ll receive notices until you have paid your account in full.

Tax accounts received during the year

You may also receive other tax accounts during the year. Those accounts have their own due dates.
