Residents should now have received their interim tax bills
Kingston's property owners should now have received their property tax bills in their mailboxes.
Owners with property assessed in both the capped (commercial, industrial and multi-residential) and uncapped (residential, farm and managed forest) property classes should receive two bills.
The deadline for payment is Friday, Feb. 28. Those who have not received their bills as expected should contact Customer Service at 613-546-0000. 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 instalments on the first day of default and interest of 1.25 per cent is charged on the first day of each month thereafter. Penalty and interest charges cannot be waived.
February 28, 2014 is the last day eligible property owners can apply for the City's tax rebate programs for 2013.
These include: the Registered Charity Property Tax Rebate Program and the Rebate for Vacant Units in Commercial or Industrial Property. More information on the rebate programs including downloadable applications can be found at www.CityofKingston.ca/taxrebates or by calling 613-546-0000. Applications for the rebate programs are also available at City Hall, 216 Ontario St.
