Property Tax Payaments and Due Dates

Annual Property Tax Due Dates
 

The Township of Perth South issues two tax billings a year with two payments on each billing. The interim billing is sent out in January with payments due the last business day in the months of February and May. The interim bill is based on 50% of the prior year taxes. The final billing is mailed in August with payments due the last business day in the months of September and November. The final billing is done after the budget has been approved and is composed of your property’s share of the current year’s budget less the amount already billed on the interim bill.
 

The authority governing the municipal tax process is the Municipal Act, S.O. 2001.
