Penalties and Interest:
Penalties and interest will be incurred on the first day of default and the first day of each calendar month thereafter at a rate of 1.25% per month (15% per year) in accordance with the Municipal Act.  Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse a taxpayer from the responsibility of the payment of taxes; nor relieve the taxpayer from the liability of interest.

Payments are first applied to interest and penalties, and then to the oldest outstanding principal amount.

The Treasurer and/or other staff can not waive the interest/penalties.
