Property taxes are collected by the Township and provide the main source of revenue to deliver services supplied by the Township. In addition to collecting its own taxes, the Township is also responsible for collecting upper-tier taxes for the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry; and education taxes of the Province of Ontario, which are distributed to school boards.

Tax bills are issued in March and June. If you have not received your tax bill by the 15th of March or July, please contact our tax department.

Instruction for e-Billing (Property Taxes)

 Penalty and Interest Charges

Payments must be received by the tax department on or before the due date in order to avoid late payment charges.

Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse a taxpayer from the responsibility for payment nor relieve the liability of penalty for late payment.

A penalty of 1.25 per cent will be charged on the unpaid amount of an installment on the first day of default.  Monthly interest charges of 1.25 per cent (15 per cent per annum) will be imposed on any unpaid taxes on the first day of each month thereafter.  Penalty and interest rates are set by Township By-laws pursuant to the Municipal Act, 2001.

Payment is applied to interest and penalty charges first, and then to taxes beginning with the oldest year first.
