Residential and Commercial Property Tax Payments Extended
The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to advise the public that at the March 30, 2020 special meeting, Council approved the recommendation to waive penalties and interest for April, May and June for both residential and commercial property taxes and utility payments. This decision effectively extends the property tax and utility due dates to June 30, 2020.
“The extension until June 30, 2020 is an interim measure that was approved by Council as a means to immediately assist residents and businesses within the community,” explained Mayor Alar Soever. “The Province has already extended the deadline for the Town to remit the June 30, 2020 School Board payment until September 30, 2020. In addition, the Town is actively working with Grey County to finalize a deferral for some of the County taxes that are owed. It is anticipated that these additional measures will be incorporated into an extended deferral period for both residential and commercial property taxes and utility payments.”
