​Property Taxes

The municipality sends out two tax bills every year:

The first one is usually sent in February every year and is payable in one instalment on the last Friday of March. This instalment represents 50% of the previous year's taxes.

After the budget is completed, the treasurer calculates the tax rates that will be used to levy the required amount approved in the budget. Based on these tax rates a final bill is sent out to the ratepayers. Again this bill is payable in two instalments due on the last Friday of June and September.

The municipality charges interest, at a rate of 15% per year, on any outstanding amount of taxes that have not been paid. The interest is charged on the first day of default and then on the first day of each month following.

PAYMENTS may be made:

-  By Mail

Pre-Authorized Payment Plans

Did you know that your tax payments can be made in 12 equal payments?  With no interest or service charges.  You can fill out either one of the Due Date Pre-Authorized Payment Plan Enrollment Form or Monthly Pre-Authorized Payment Plan Enrollment Form and submit it to the Treasury Department.  Some restrictions may apply, please contact the Treasury Department for details. 

Late Payment Charges

NO MATTER WHAT PAYMENT OPTION YOU CHOOSE TO USE TO PAY YOUR TAXES, ALL PAYMENTS MUST BE RECEIVED AT THE TOWNSHIP OFFICE BY THE DUE DATE. ABSOLUTELY NO EXTENSIONS WILL BE GRANTED

PENALTY and interest charges of 1.25% per month, effective the first day of default, will be applied.

Keep your receipted tax bill for income tax purposes.  No other receipt can be issued at a later date.  The fee for "Tax Record of Payment" is $7.00.

Although nobody likes doing it, when someone is delinquent in paying the municipality what it is owed, the treasurer may use small claims court, bailiffs, collection agencies and tax sales to recover outstanding accounts.
