Property owners should now have their final 2021 property tax bills. The deadline for payment is Friday, July 30.
“Normally due at the end of June, the final 2021 billing was deferred to help alleviate some of the financial pressure property owners may have experienced due to the pandemic,” says Jeff Walker, the City’s Manager of Taxation.
If you are a property owner, and have not received your final property tax bill – or have questions – please call 613-546-0000, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday or email [email protected].
Property taxes allow the City to provide services, such as waste and recycling collection, public transit and recreation and cultural programming, and to maintain and improve City recreational facilities, parks, roads and pathways.
- To avoid late payment charges, the City must receive payment on or before the due date.
- Penalty and interest charges on late payments cannot be waived.
- Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse a ratepayer from the responsibility for payment nor relieve the liability of penalty for late payment.
- A penalty of 1.25 per cent is charged on unpaid installments on the first day of default and interest of 1.25 per cent is charged on the first day of each month thereafter.
Please read your tax bill for convenient payment options.
