More Changes on Final Municipal Tax Bill

Automatic withdrawals for the final municipal tax bill are still set up for August 3.

Although Chatham-Kent has extended the deadline for final property tax bills until August 10, property owners who use Pre-Authorized Payment installment plans will continue to have taxes withdrawn from their bank accounts on the original date of August 3 unless they take action. Previously submitted post-dated cheques will be cashed on the date indicated on the cheque.

Taxpayers can request to be removed from Pre-Authorized Payment Plans (PAP) by contacting the Tax department at 519-360-1998 or by completing the Preauthorized Payment Change or Cancellation Form and emailing to ckar@Chatham-Kent.ca, at least five business days before the scheduled withdrawal.

Final property tax bills for more than 35,000 properties were expected to be delivered last week but due to a delay in printing the notices are now expected to be delivered by Tuesday, July 27.

As a result of the delay, the municipality has extended the due date until the end of business Tuesday, August 10.

No interest will be charged until after that date.

Residents with questions can contact the municipality by calling 3-1-1 or 519-360-1998, not the phone number on the bill itself that is incorrect due to the use of a new software program.
