Media Release: COVID-19 Update: Property Tax Payments

Posted On Friday March 27, 2020

(HUNTSVILLE, ON) To assist Town of Huntsville residents with the impact of COVID-19, the Town has waived the penalty on tax payments for the two-month period of March 31 to May 31, 2020. The deferral allows Town of Huntsville residents the ability to defer interim tax payments prior to May 31, 2020 deadline without incurring any penalty.

“We are continuing to look at ways on how we can continue to support you, the community, during this time” said Mayor Karin Terziano.

The penalty waiving decision has been taken to support those most in need.  Property owners that have the means to make their payment by the due date of March 31st are encouraged to do so, as property taxes fund the many municipal and school board services that continue to be provided.
