2021 Tax Notices

You’ll notice your bill looks different from before. As part of our continued focus on digital transformation, we are excited to announce the rollout of several new systems, including ones for taxation and utility billing.

IMPORTANT HIGHLIGHTS

ONE TAX NOTICE, TWO INSTALLMENTS

The new Tax Notice highlights the amount owing for the entire year. As always, payment due dates are still twice per year:

• First installment is due February 15, 2021 – Extended to February 26th
• Second installment is due July 30, 2021

An updated statement will be sent in July with a reminder for the second installment.

PRE-AUTHORIZED PAYMENTS

If using preauthorized payments to pay your tax bill, please note that going forward, all payments will now be deducted on the last day of the month. If the last day of the month falls on a weekend, the payment will be taken on the next business day.

OUTSTANDING BALANCE/CREDITS

The summary section will indicate any applicable balances/credits. However, these are not included in the installment amounts. The installments are solely for 2021 taxes and any other outstanding balances are past due. To make payment arrangements, please contact our Collections Administrator at 748-1033.

HOW TO PAY

THROUGH YOUR BANK

Payments can be made in person, online or via phone through your bank. Use the roll number found on your bill as the account number. Please contact your bank for details.

SET UP PREAUTHORIZED BANK DEBIT

Forms may be obtained on the City’s website by visiting mountpearl.ca/taxes or by visiting City Hall. If preauthorized payments have already been set up, they will be adjusted for any changes in taxes. Please note all payments will now be deducted on the last day of the month. If the last day of the month falls on a weekend, the payment will be taken on the following business day.

THROUGH YOUR MORTGAGE

If your taxes are paid by your mortgage company, the tax bill is simply for your records. If your mortgage company is not noted in the appropriate box on your tax bill, please contact us at 748-1000.

PAY AT CITY HALL (CHEQUE, DEBIT CARD)

Please note City Hall is currently closed to the public and the tax payment drop box inside City Hall for those paying by cheque is currently unavailable inside City Hall for those paying by cheque. Please indicate the roll number on your cheque. Credit cards are not accepted.
