Calculation of the final billing is as follows: (This applies to ALL properties including residential/commercial/industrial, etc)

Assessment x Property Tax Rate = Total Property Taxes for the Year Total Taxes - Interim Payments = Final Billing (this total is split over the final 2 payment dates).

Calculation of the interim billing is as follows: The Interim Billing is 50% of the prior year's taxes.  Each of the interim payments is equal to 25% of the prior year's total tax billing or a minimum instalment of $100.

 

All taxes shall be paid into the office of the Treasurer/Tax Collector, at the Municipal office P.O. Box 409, 206 Toronto St. S., Unit 1, Markdale, ON, N0C 1H0 either in person (cash, cheque, or debit) or by mail to this same address, at most financial institutions in person or by telephone/internet banking, or by preauthorized electronic payment, with the ratepayer responsible for payment of all bank processing charges. All payments must be received in the office by 4:30 pm on the due date to avoid penalty charges. Therefore, the property owner should allow 2 - 3 business days for internet or telephone banking. Any telephone banking or internet payment withdrawn from the taxpayers' bank account on or before the due date will be honoured.
Please note: Credit Cards are only accepted online by clicking on the ePay option on our home page - and a nominal charge will be applied.

On all taxes, water, and wastewater in default on the first day of the month following the due date, a penalty of 1.25% shall be added and thereafter a penalty of 1.25% per month will be added on the first day of each and every month the default continues.

PREAUTHORIZED PAYMENT is offered by the municipality. Completed forms with a void cheque can be submitted to the office.
