Taxation department

The tax department ensures the daily operations pertaining to taxes and the tax collection. It processes data, ensuring the database is up to date.

 

It sees to it that all monies paid to the municipality for general or special taxes, various accounts and other revenues are deposited.

Your tax payment

As you may already know, your municipal taxes are payable via Internet through most financial institutions.

To be noted

 

If you’re paying via Internet, in order to ensure that your payment reaches us, you must include the numbers 82030 followed by the letter F, and your roll number which is comprised of 10 digits, for a total of 16 spaces. Thank you.

Reminder

 

It is very important to inscribe on the back of your cheque, the number of your invoice, the roll number or the address of the property for which you are sending a payment.

In addition, when moving, it is important that you inform us of your new address as soon as possible.

To avoid additional fees of 13% (interest) and 5% (penalties), please keep in mind the deadlines for paying municipal taxes:

  • March 1st
  • June 1st
  • October 1st

Sending tax reminders

Please note that tax reminders will no longer be sent out on a monthly basis. From now on, they will be sent out 3 times a year in order to save money on mailings.
