March 31:  TVT Waives Penalty and Interest on Property Taxes

 

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the community, Tay Valley Township Council has passed a By-Law to waive penalty and interest on property taxes.  In other words, no penalty or interest will be incurred on overdue tax accounts during this time.  The By-Law also suspends all tax sale activities. These measures will be in place for three months (April, May, and June) and will be revisited by Council as more information becomes available.  These measures are intended to assist taxpayers in this difficult time. 

With respect to amounts owing for property taxes, we encourage payment by the means noted below if at all possible.  For those that have a financial impact due to COVID-19, please contact the Township to discuss your account(s). 

As a reminder the Municipal Office is closed to the public, but payments can still be made as follows:

-Online or telephone banking

-Mailing a cheque to the Municipal Office (217 Harper Road, Perth, ON, K7H 3C6)

-Dropping a cheque into the mailbox located outside of the Municipal Office at 217 Harper Road 

For taxpayers who are currently on a pre-authorized payment (PAP) plan, have submitted a post-dated cheque to the Township, or pay property taxes through a mortgage holder, no action is necessary. 

If you are on PAP or have provided a post-dated cheque for the upcoming April 28th tax installment but will not be able to continue with payment(s) please contact the Township to be removed from PAP or have your post-dated cheque held/returned and discuss your account(s) options.
