Each year Council establishes a rate of taxation based on assessed values, sufficient to pay for those expenditures that are not recovered from other revenue sources. For 2012, the rate is $15.7894 per $1,000 of assessed value for residential taxpayers and $17.4050 per $1,000 for commercial and industrial taxpayers.
Tax payments are due July 31st of each year. Tax notices are usually mailed out by June 1st of each year. The due date is specified on the Tax Notices and is advertised two weeks before the tax deadline in the local newspaper.
Payments can be made directly to the Town Office during regular business hours, through Internet banking, or telephone banking. The Town accepts cash, cheques, money orders, and post dated cheques.
T.I.P.P. - The Tax Installment Payment Program is beneficial for those people who find it difficult to make a single payment that comes due once a year. The program is set up to allow the property owner to make monthly installments with no interest penalty. For further information, please contact our Tax Department at (403) 664-3511.
