Taxes are due on or before March 29. If you have not received your bill, contact the Township Office. Not receiving your tax bill in the mail does not preclude you from paying the installment by March 29.

Tax bills may be paid at most chartered banks, by mail, by telephone/Internet banking or in person at the Township Office, located at 6547 Roger Stevens Drive. Payments can be made in person at the Township Office by cash, Interac or cheque - no credit cards. A drop box is located at the main door for those who cannot make it to the office during regular hours - please do not leave cash.

NEW: Preauthorized Payment Plan for Property Tax and Utilities Payments.  Automatic monthly withdrawals directly from your bank account are now available for your convenience.  Application forms are available on our website or in person at the Township Office.

When paying your tax bill by Internet or telephone banking, you must use an eight-digit portion of your 19-digit roll number located at the top left-hand corner of your tax bill. Please use the following EXAMPLE to guide you: 0901 000 (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) 0000 . All eight digits located in the brackets must be used to ensure your account will be properly credited.

Unless paying in person, allow 3-5 business days for your payment to reach us. Note: There is a $15 fee for a reprint of a tax bill.  Keep your final tax bill for income tax purposes.            

Change of Address:  Montague Township mails all tax notices to the last known address provided by the property owner.   It is the responsibility of the owner to provide the Township with any change to their mailing address. 


Our Provincial Government has made a few changes to the Municipal Act.  One change was to reduce the length of time that taxes are in arrears before proceeding with the tax sale process. Effective May 30, 2017, if property taxes are 2 years in arrears, tax sale procedures can proceed.  Montague    began following this new time-line on January 1, 2018.
