Note: Ratepayers may make consecutive monthly payments for property taxes.
How does the Payment Plan work?
The onus is on the ratepayer to advise the M.D. of their monthly payments.
Starting each November, the monthly payment is calculated by dividing your most recent annual tax levy by 12 months. When the current levy is known, the pre-payments are subtracted and the new balance divided by the remaining months up to October 31st.
