The Province requires the educational property tax for municipalities be remitted every March, June, September and December. The Town collects this tax on behalf of the Province, every year, through our yearly tax bill that is normally due June 30th. In the event the Town does not receive payment from property owners for this requisition by June 30th, the Town must still remit to the Province the requested amounts. This year the Province will be lowering the amount municipalities must remit for June and September however, the amount deferred must be remitted in December. This can create cash flow problems for the Town and is why we are encouraging all property owners who have the means and ability to pay their taxes by June to do so.
