Financial relief reminder for April tax and utility bills

COVID-19 updates

As the next billing cycle approaches, we are mindful that many residents are facing financial hardships as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To provide interim financial relief, the municipality has deferred the payment of property taxes for 60 days until June 27. For utility bills (water and wastewater services), penalty and interest has been waived on water and wastewater bills for the period of April 1 to June 30. Additionally, water services will not be disconnected during this period. 

For residents wishing to make changes to preauthorized payment plans, monthly payments or post dated cheques, please visit our website to let us know your preference. If we don’t hear from you, the following deferrals and pre-authorized payments will occur.

Property Tax: If you are enrolled in the ‘installment due date pre-authorized payment plan’, the withdrawal scheduled for April 29, 2020 will be deferred until June 27, 2020. Post-dated cheques for the upcoming April 29 property tax installment will be held and not processed until June 27. All monthly pre-authorized payments will continue as scheduled.

Water/Wastewater: All pre-authorized payments will continue as scheduled.

For more information, please contact 705-324-9411 extension 1274, email taxes@kawarthalakes.ca, utilitybilling@kawarthalakes.ca or visit the municipal website.
