Pre-authorized Payment Plans

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.

Instalment Plan
The first program is the Instalment Program. This program will automatically withdraw from your bank account the amount of your tax installment on the due date.

Monthly Plan
The second program is the Monthly Plan. This plan is based on 10 monthly instalments, 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.

 

Change of Ownership or Mailing Address

Changes to the name(s) on an account can only be made through information received from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) or a registered deed.

  • The Town is provided with information of a property purchase or sale approximately twenty (20) days after the day of closing.
  • If you haven’t received a tax bill with your name on it after 1 month of the closing date, please contact the Revenue department.
  • There is a $35.00 fee per ownership change.

 
To prevent misdirected bills, please advise the Town of any changes to a mailing address. The tax office requires written instructions to make changes to the mailing address on a property tax account.
