Vaudreuil-Dorion residential property owners have been given some respite when it comes to submitting their property tax payments for 2021.
City council adopted regulation 1802-01 during a special session on January 25 which amended the payment due dates. The new regulation means that each of the three payment due dates have been extended by one month to give homeowners a bit of breathing room due to financial setbacks that may have occurred during the pandemic.
The original three payment due dates which were initially scheduled for March 15, June 15, and September 15 are now due on April 13, July 15 and October 15 respectively. The revised due dates will be indicated on the property tax statement which will be sent out in mid-February.
“The purpose of this measure is to give our residents some breathing space,” said Mayor Guy Pilon. “The pandemic has been going on for almost one year now and we know the situation is not easy for many people.”
The residential property tax increase for owners of residential building with five units or less this year amounted to 1.5 per cent but it was offset entirely after council adopted tax relief measures when the budget was adopted during a special council sitting in December.
