The Town of Lakeshore offers two pre-authorized payment plans to pay your property taxes. Either program is available to customers who are not in arrears.
The first program is the Installment Program. This program will automatically withdraw from your bank account the amount of your tax installment on the due date.
The second program is the Monthly Plan. This plan is based on 10 monthly installments, starting in January and ending in October. At the start of the plan your monthly tax payment will be based on your previous year's taxes plus 5%. This amount will be adjusted once a year after the final tax billing has been calculated to reflect the actual amount of the current year's taxes. The customer will receive notification of the modified payment amount. The monthly payment amount will then remain the same until the beginning of the next year. At the beginning of the new year the monthly payment will again be calculated based on the 5%. And the process continues. This payment plan is only available to those property owners who are not in arrears. The enrolment deadline is December 15 of the year prior to automatic withdrawals being made.
If you are interested in either of these plans, please contact the tax department at extension 301.
If the property has changed ownership, send the bill to the new owner or return it to the Tax Office, indicating to whom the transfer of title has been made. To prevent misdirected tax bills, please advise the Tax Office in writing of mailing address changes.

Yes, you will still get a bill showing your water usage, but it will be marked paid.
