Property Tax Bills

Updated: Jul 29 20
 Created: Apr 21 20

Property Tax Bills are mailed twice per year; one in February and one in July.  

The first tax bill is the Interim Tax Bill and the second tax bill is the Final Tax Bill.  The Final Tax Bill reflects the current tax rate.  New tax rates are generally set by the Municipality in June.

Property Tax Payments are due four times per year.  See below for the due dates.

PROPERTY TAX INSTALLMENT – DUE DATES

**Interest and penalties on outstanding property taxes have been
waived for the month of May. 

**Interest was also waived on outstanding 2020 taxes for the month of June.**

INTERIM TAX BILL

First                                                                Thursday, April 30, 2020

Second                                                           Tuesday, June 30, 2020

FINAL TAX BILL

Third                                                                Monday, August 31, 2020

Fourth                                                              Monday, November 30, 2020

Installments must be received no later than the close of business on the due dates to avoid penalties.  If paying by mail, the tax payer assumes responsibility for late arrival.  Penalty will be charged if payment is received after the close of business on the due date.

Penalty and interest is fixed at a rate of 1.25% per month.  Penalty and interest will accrue on unpaid taxes commencing on the first day of default and also on the first day of each calendar month thereafter.  If you are in tax arrears at time of billing date, and the arrears remain unpaid prior to the first due date, there will be 1.25% interest added to the installment amount.  Payments received will be credited towards penalty/interest first and then to the oldest taxes owing.

If your tax bill is to be paid through a mortgage arrangement, it is still your responsibility to ensure that the taxes are indeed paid.  You will receive a copy of your receipted bill once payment has been received.

Taxes are payable in Canadian funds.  Payments received in U.S. or other funds may be subject to an administration fee.

The Township of Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan collects property taxes from each property owner. Tenants pay a portion of their landlord's property taxes through their rent.

The taxes are calculated by multiplying the assessed value of a property by a tax rate. There are three parts to the tax rate:

  • the municipal tax rate, which is set by your municipal government;
  • the county tax rate, which is set by your regional government (the County of Renfrew); and
  • the education tax rate, which is set by the provincial government.

A municipality can set different tax rates for different classes of property, and the main classes include residential, multi-residential, commercial and industrial.

Property Assessment

Updated: Jun 15 20
 Created: May 11 20

MPAC is responsible for assessing and classifying more than five million properties in Ontario.  The property assessments they provide are what municipalities use to base the property taxes needed to pay for community services.  

The Ontario government has announced that the 2020 Assessment Update has been postponed.  It has indicated property assessments for the 2021 property tax year will continue to be based on the fully phased-in January 1, 2016 current values.  This means your property assessment for the 2021 property tax year will be the same as the 2020 tax year, unless there have been changes to your property.

To help you better understand your property assessment, please visit the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) website.
