Current Taxes are due by October 31st. Payment must be received by the office by 4:30 pm. Acceptable methods of payment include: cash, personal cheque, money order and/or online through your banking establishment. A penalty of 1.25% (15% per annum) will be added to all unpaid taxes after the due date, and a like penalty on the 1st day of each and every month thereafter until paid.
*Please note: Depending on your banking establishment, online banking payments may take 1-3 days to process and be received in the RM office. Please take this into consideration when paying online to avoid interest charges.*
Tax arrears and penalties must be paid in full before payment can be applied to current taxes. Properties in arrears of taxes for more than one year may be sold for taxes.
The Municipality of Lorne administrative office must be advised promptly of any change of ownership or mailing address in order to ensure that the tax invoice is properly forwarded. If you have received a Tax Notice and the property to which it relates has been sold, please ensure that the Notice is forwarded to the new property owners, or return it to the Municipal Office for proper addressing. Failure to receive an invoice does not excuse responsibility for payment of taxes nor relieve the owner from liability for any late payment penalty. For further information regarding your taxes, please telephone, write or email the Rural Municipality of Lorne. When making an inquiry about your statement, please quote the Roll Number that appears on the top right hand corner of your statement.
