Property taxes are calculated by multiplying your annual assessed value by the tax rates established from the Municipality, County and Province.
Amounts required by the County of Peterborough and school boards are paid to them based on the amounts levied each year and the Municipality retains only the amount required to meet its financial needs in accordance with the annual budget.
In order to facilitate seniors and/or persons on pensions the Township will be moving the tax due dates to the 1st Friday of the following month to ensure ease of payments.
Due dates will always be on a Friday (except if a holiday) from now on to also help tax payers who get paid at the end of the week to budget for tax payments.
