Tax Billing and Collection:
 
Property taxes are billed twice a year and each bill has two installments.
 

The interim tax levy is billed prior to the annual municipal budget being set and 15 equal to 50% of the previous year's tax bills.
 
The final tax levy is billed after the annual budget is set and is calculated by multiplying the property assessment by the tax rate for the year.
 
Once the total annual taxes are calculated, the interim levy is deducted from the final levy to determine the amounts of your final instalments.
 
The Township of Hornepayne also has an annual Frontage Charge for water and sewer and this is billed annually with the final tax levy.
 
Tax bills are always mailed at least 21 days prior to the due dates.
 
Any outstanding taxes are charged interest/penalty at a rate of 1.25% per month.
