We're Moving to One Tax Bill in 2018

After careful consideration, Council of Municipality of the District of Shelburne has decided to return to one tax bill per year, beginning next year in 2018. You will still receive two tax bills in 2017.

For the past number of years, the Municipality has issued two tax bills per year, one in April and one in September. Upon reflection, this process has not been as efficient and cost effective as anticipated, and returning to one tax bill will save our taxpayers up to $15,000 annually, which we can re-invest back into your priority areas.

In order to best serve the residents of the Municipality, property taxes will transition from two tax bills per year to one, as follows:

Tax Bill Date             Due Date

April 1, 2017              May 31, 2017

September 1, 2017   October 31, 2017

April 1, 2018              June 30, 2018

April 1, 2019              June 30, 2019

As noted above, beginning April 1, 2018, a tax bill will be sent out once per year with an extended due date, allowing up to three months for payment.

As always, payments can be made at our office by cheque, cash or debit. Residents can also make arrangements to drop off post-dated cheques, set up pre-payment options with participating online banking providers, or pay by credit card through an external third party credit card company. We cannot accept credit card payments at our office.

Please call our Finance Department at 902-875-3544 ext. 228, if you require more information.
