Tax Bills

Tax Bills are generated twice a year (March & August) with four (4) installment dates; March 27th, June 26th ; August 28th and October 27th.

Failure to receive your tax bill and /or awaiting an adjustment (request for reconsideration; appeal; farm tax credit, etc.) does not excuse a taxpayer from responsibility for payment of the taxes nor relieve liability for penalty due to late payment.  
Address changes are required to be in writing (email, fax or lettermail is acceptable).

Penalty/Interest
As stated by the Municipal Act, 2001, and Municipal By-law, penalty/interst will be charged at a rate of 1.25% per month.  Late payment charges will be added to tax accounts on the 1st day of default as well as the 1st day of the month thereafter until the account is paid in full.  Payments are applied to penalty/interset first and then to the oldest unpaid tax amount.

How to Pay
Pay‚Äčments can be made at the Municipal Office at 1925 Bruce Rd 10, Chesley (cash, debit or cheque), Pre-Authorized payment Plan, by mail (post dated cheques are held until due date when requested), or by using the drop box at the front door of the Municipal Office.  Payments must be made on or before the due date to avoid penalty.
