The Ville de Mont-Tremblant will help its ratepayers deal with financial issues arising from the COVID-19 crisis. The town and agglomeration councils have met to pass measures that will make payment of 2020 municipal taxes more flexible as to timing.
A by-law modifying by-law number (2001) -03 on the terms of payment of municipal property taxes and compensations in order to grant a respite to taxpayers due to the impacts of COVID-19 was adopted at the extraordinary session of the March 26.
- Compilation administration of the regulations on the payment of municipal property taxes and compensation
New payment schedule
The 2020 tax new payment dates are:
- June 1st
- July 31
- September 30
- November 30.
Postdated cheques will be cashed in accordance with these new dates, not on the earlier dates written on the cheques.
Suspension of interest and penalties until May 31, 2020
It has also been decided that the interest rate on taxes and unpaid balances, and the penalty rates, will be 0% until May 31, 2020. This will suspend interest application and penalties on unpaid and payable taxes, which stood at 12% and 5% annually. If the crisis lasts longer, the two councils will look into prolonging this measure, which takes effect immediately.
The mayor, Luc Brisebois, notes that it is important to council members that citizens be supported in these uncertain time. A period of respite can help them financially, he explains.
You may settle your account as follows:
- By telephone using a credit card or prepaid credit card: by exception, the Ville will authorize this payment mode;
- In chartered Canadian banks;
- By internet through your financial institution;
- By mail;
- By cheque, depositing it in the city hall mail box (black box outside the main entrance).
In spite of what is indicated on your tax account bill, payments by debit card and in cash are currently refused.
