Taxes

All Property tax notices are mailed out in May of current year. Payments for taxes must be received on or before the June 30th deadline to avoid any penalties. Any mailed payments must be postmarked by Canada Post on or before June 30th, with the postmarked date visible. Penalties will be charged on  outstanding current taxes with a 3% penalty added per month (Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec) to the current years taxes and a 18% penalty will be charged on January 1st for all outstanding balances not paid in full by December 31.  For further information please contact the Village office. Payments can be made by cheque or Cash. Please do not mail cash, or do not drop off cash in the Village box, as this is not secure,  the Village will not be held responsible for lost payments.

When making a payment by cheque be sure to include your roll number, name and property address.

Tax Payment Plan (TPP)

The S.V. of Sandy Beach Tax Payment Plan can help. Using the TPP allows you to spread out your tax payments throughout the year.

How it works

The TPP Plan runs from January to December each year. Your first five monthly payments will be estimated based on your previous year's tax levy.  

Residents receive their tax notice in May. As a TPP Plan participant, your monthly payments will then be revised for your June Payment. 

Any adjustments required as a result of the annual levy will be spread over the last seven payments of the year. the revised payments continue until May of the following year. 

Payments may only be made by cheque.  The Village requires all TPP participants to issue post-dated cheques dated the last day of the month until May of the following year. 

Cheques will be deposited on the last day of each month.

How to apply

Contact the Village office for a TPP Form and payment amount prior to January 15th of the Current year.
