Property Tax Information

Property taxes are due twice per year.  The first bill, the interim bill, is due in March and represents 50% of the previous years’ levied taxes.  The final tax bill is due in August each year.

Your tax bill is your official receipt for income tax purposes.

If you have not received a bill or would like additional information please contact the Property Tax Department at  705-765-3156 or by email at

Due Dates

            March 29, 2018

Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse a taxpayer of the responsibility for payment of taxes or penalty charges.

Interest of 1.25% per month will be added to the tax account on any unpaid balance on the first day of the month following the due date. Every month thereafter, any unpaid balance will also incur the interest charge.
