Tax bills will be in the mail

Final tax notices will be mailed to Prince Edward County taxpayers on Friday, April 22. Due to the late release of the 2016 Education Tax Rates from the province, the County could not finalize tax notices and as a result, they were delayed.

The 2016 payment schedule for Residential properties is as follows:
First instalment is due: May 16, 2016
Second instalment due: July 15, 2016
Third instalment due: Sept. 15, 2016

The 2016 payment schedule for Multi-Residential, Commercial and Industrial properties is as follows:
First instalment due: June 15, 2016
Second instalment due: Sept. 15, 2016
Third instalment due: Nov. 15, 2016

The delay will not impact taxpayers enrolled in monthly pre-authorized payment plans as withdrawals continue as scheduled. Taxpayers enrolled in the pre-authorized instalment payment plan are to refer to the payment dates listed above.

The municipality needed to wait for the education tax rates as it collects education taxes on behalf of the province and remits the funds directly to the school boards that service Prince Edward County. The residential education tax rate was 0.195000 per cent in 2015 and 0.188000 per cent in 2016, reflecting a decrease of 3.6 per cent.

“We appreciate how frustrating this delay has been for County of Prince Edward taxpayers,” said Susan Turnbull, Commissioner of Corporate Services and Finance. “We apologize for any inconvenience that this delay has caused.”
