Property Tax Updates

Notice to Ratepayers

Second Installment of the 2018 Tax Levy is Due

The second installment of the 2018 interim tax levy is due on Friday June 1st, 2018. Taxes may be paid through pre-authorized payment, telephone/internet banking, mailed to or at the Municipal Office, 21 Queen St., Ripley. Our office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For your convenience, interac as well as post-dated cheques are accepted at the office There is also an after-hours drop box located at the front of the office. 

Taxes not paid by the due date are subject to interest charges of 1.25% per month. Please ensure your payment is received in the office by the due date. When making a payment through Telephone/Internet banking & Teller/ABM payments please allow minimum of two (2) business days for payment to be received in  the municipal office. 

Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the taxpayer from the responsibility for payment nor the liability of penalty charges for the late payment. 

Any ratepayer who has not received a tax notice is advised to contact the Township of Huron-Kinloss Municipal Office (519) 395-3735 as soon as possible. 

Important Epost Customer Information

A recent change in the Municipal Act now allows municipalities to email tax notices directly to the ratepayers email address they have provided. Therefore, the Township of Huron-Kinloss will no longer be retaining services of Epost for delivery of property tax notices but now offers an e-billing program. 

Please unsubscribe the Township of Huron-Kinloss from your Epost mail box. 

Our program is similar to Epost in that you will receive your tax bill electronically at least 21 days prior to the earliest due date shown on the bill. It will be your only notification as you will no longer receive a paper copy of your bill. It is the responsibility of the ratepayer to notify the Township if the email address that you provided to us changes, and your participation in the program will be cancelled if your e-bill is returned as undeliverable. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the taxpayer from payment of taxes nor from liability of penalty for late payment. 

To learn more and sign up to receive your property tax bills by email directly from the Township of Huron-Kinloss, please visit us online.
