The 2019 Interim Tax Bills and Municipal Spring Newsletter are being mailed out this week. Items of note in the Newsletter include community volunteer opportunities, requests for letters of interest for Livestock Investigators, upcoming events, Emergency Preparedness Week and Fire Department news.
Interim taxes are based on 50% of your total property taxes from the previous year. The billing is divided into 2 installments due March 29 and May 31 (the last business days of the month). Payment may be remitted as follows:
- NEW!! Interac/Debit Card service is NOW available at the Municipal Office for not only property tax payments but all other payments as well. Fees may apply. Cash or cheques, in Canadian funds are also accepted.
- E-Payments: On-line property tax payment is available at huronshores.ca. To remit payments via this secure service, simply click on the bright red button, login, and set up your account by following the step-by-step instructions. When paying please include your 19-digit roll number without any dashes (e.g. 5724000001135790000). Pay each tax bill individually. Allow two (2) business days to receive your account confirmation. NOTE: a fee will be charged by the provider for this service.
- Canadian Financial Institution: Payment may be remitted via your local financial institution branch, by telephone or on-line. NOTE: When paying taxes on line or by telephone, if you have more than one tax bill, please make sure that the correct amounts are applied to the respective tax bills.
- Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Tax Payment Program: It’s a voluntary program authorizing your financial institution to make property tax payments on your behalf through automatic withdrawals from your bank account. Please click here to download the required form and learn further details about this payment option.
The Municipality strives to ensure that all tax notices are mailed out on time and to the most recent address in the Municipal Tax Billing System. Address changes MUST be submitted to the office in writing. Here is the Address Change Form. It is the responsibility of the taxpayer to ensure that payments are made in a timely manner, regardless of receipt of the tax notice.
