Tips for Avoiding the Late Tax Payment Penalty
Payments submitted by mail must be clearly postmarked by Canada Post on or before August 31.
The last day to pay in person is August 31 of each calendar year, either at the counter during regular office hours or through the drop box at the front door outside regular office hours.
To avoid line-ups or to ensure we receive your payment on time, you can mail your post-dated cheque in early.
Regular Office hours are 8:30 to 11:45 – 12:45 to 4:30 Monday through Friday.
- Allow ample time for your payment to be postmarked by Canada Post before the due date.
- Enclose the stub portion of your bill with your cheque.
- Record your tax roll number or property address on your cheque.
Ensure your cheque is signed and completed accurately, as The County of Forty Mile No. 8 is not responsible for errors and/or omissions.
