Property Tax Bills are in the mail
June 11, 2014 -
Property owners should now have their final bills for residential, farm, managed forest, multi-residential, commercial and industrial property taxes. The deadline for payment is Monday, June 30.
Property taxes support municipal services and local school boards. An insert that accompanies the tax bill outlines the estimated annual cost for municipal services levied on an average residential property (see www.CityofKingston.ca/tax).
To avoid late payment charges, the City must receive payments on or before the due date. 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. Penalty and interest charges 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. Please read your tax bill for convenient payment options.
If you have not received your tax bill, or if you require additional information, please contact the customer call centre at 613-546-000 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
