2020 Non-residential Education Property Tax
Even though the province has provided non-residential taxpayers deferral of the Education Property Tax, the County has decided to extend this deferral for all taxpayers.
In order for all taxpayers to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, County Council amended the Penalty Bylaw for 2020 to allow taxpayers until September 30, 2020 to pay their taxes without penalty. Normally, unpaid taxes are penalized on July 1.
If you are able to pay your taxes by June 30, we certainly encourage you to do so as the County is continuing to operate and provide essential services.
Property Tax Penalties Property Taxes are still due on/by Tuesday, June 30, 2020 but the penalty for paying taxes after June 30 will be applied on October 1, 2020. The penalty dates for 2020 are:
October 1, 2020: 3% penalty on the current tax amount
(usually on July 1)
December 1, 2020: 10% penalty on the current tax amount
February 1, 2021: 10% on all outstanding taxes
