Property taxes are levied by the Township and provide the main source of revenue to deliver services supplied by the Township. In addition to collecting its own taxes, the Township is also responsible for levying and collecting upper-tier taxes that are remitted to the County of Lennox and Addington; and education taxes on behalf of the Province of Ontario, which are distributed to school boards.
Tax bills are issued in February and June. If you have not received your tax bill by the 15th of February or June, please contact our tax department at 613-386-7351, ext.119.
Penalty and Interest Charges
Payments must be received by the tax department on or before the due date in order to avoid late payment charges.
Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse a taxpayer from the responsibility for payment nor relieve the liability of penalty for late payment.
A penalty of 1.25 per cent will be charged on the unpaid amount of an instalment on the first day of default. Monthly interest charges of 1.25 per cent (15 per cent per annum) will be imposed on any unpaid taxes on the first day of each month thereafter. Penalty and interest rates are set by Township bylaws pursuant to section 345(1) of the Municipal Act, 2001.
Payment is applied to interest and penalty charges first, and then to taxes beginning with the oldest year first.
