Property Tax and Assessment

The Township of Lake of Bays property tax division operates within the Finance Department and is responsible for the billing and collection of all interim, final and supplementary property tax billings.

As well, the tax department administers a number of provincially mandated programs including the commercial vacancy rebate and the registered charity rebate programs.

The department also processes property tax adjustments resulting from Section 357 applications under the Municipal Act, assessment review board decisions and requests for reconsideration under the authority of the Assessment Act.

Municipal programs administered by the tax department include the township's preauthorized tax payment plan and the elderly tax assistance credit.

NOTICE:  Penalty will be added to all unpaid tax accounts on the first day of each month.  If you have not received a copy of your bill, please contact the Tax Department at 705-635-2272.  Failure to receive a bill does NOT relieve a taxpayer of the responsibility for payment of taxes or penalty charges.
