Payment Information

The Town is still able to process tax payments for any residents, businesses or commercial entities who want to do so at this time. Please see below for current payment methods available. 

Preauthorized Debit

Taxes paid through preauthorized debit are charged through 10 monthly equal payments, which begin March 15 and end December 15. A void cheque and a one-time authorization form are required. No interest is charged if you use this payment method. If you had preauthorized debit in 2019 the debit amount will be adjusted for 2020, unless you cancel, which must be done in writing.

Please note: If you have more than one Non-sufficient Fund (NSF) payment you will be taken off Preauthorized Debit payment and you will have to make other arrangements to pay the remaining 2020 balance and all future taxes.

Post-dated Cheques *UPDATE*

The Town Hall is currently closed on public health advice to help contain the spread of COVID-19. As such, if you have not already made arragnements for post-dated cheque payments, we are not able to receive them at the Town Hall at this time. Payments can be accpeted through online banking, credit card or e-services. 

 

Using post-dated cheques enables equal payments to cover the entire balance of the account. The first cheque must be dated on or before March 2, 2020 and all cheques must be received in the office on or before March 2, 2020. No interest will be charged if the cheques to cover the full amount equally distributed throughout the year are received by the Town by March 2, 2020. If you have more than one property, please issue a separate set of cheques for each property.

Please note: If you have more than one Non-sufficient Fund (NSF) cheque payment you will be taken off Post-Date Cheque payment and you will have to make other arrangements to pay the remaining 2020 balance and all future taxes.
