Property Taxes

Property taxes are a key source of revenue for Front of Yonge Township.  This revenue helps fund services such as infrastructure upgrades, parks, facilities and library services.  There are two tax billings per year; the interim bill in March and the final bill in June.

The interim bill is calculated at 50% of the previous year’s total taxes levied against the property.  The final tax bill is calculated using the assessed value of your property multiplied by the current year tax rates, less the interim tax bill amount.

The final bill in June is broken up into two installments; due the end of June and the end of September.  Property owners are welcome to pay both the June and September installments by the due date in June.

Tax payments can be made at your bank or through online banking, by visiting the Township Office with cash, a cheque or by debit, or by mailing a cheque.  Please note, credit card payments are not accepted.

Property Tax Rate

Your property taxes are based on the assessed value of your property as determined by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).

The Township of Front of Yonge is a lower-tier municipality.  This means we collect taxes on behalf of the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville and the school boards (English Public, English Separate, French Public and French Separate).

2024 Tax Rates

Penalties for late payments

Interest in the amount of 1.25% is calculated on any outstanding amount and is added at the start of each month.

Interest is calculated on arrears only.  For example, if you have a tax bill due June 27th in the amount of $500 and you fail to make the payment, $6.25 will be added as interest at the beginning of July.  If you fail to settle the bill in July, another $6.25 will be added at the beginning of August.

How payments are applied when there are arrears

If you have outstanding taxes, any payment made will be applied to the interest first and then the arrears.  Using the example above, if you make a payment of $500 towards your account at the beginning of September, $12.50 of that will go towards the interest accrued for July and August.  This leaves $487.50 to go towards your taxes.  The remaining amount ($12.50) will continue to accrue interest per month until the outstanding amount is paid.
