Tax payment

You can pay your municipal tax bill using one of the following payment methods:

Payment method

Pre-authorized payment
We encourage you to fill out a form authorizing us to withdraw your payments directly from your bank account by the deadline and thereby avoid oversights and interest. You can find the pre-authorized payment form here.

Internet
Via the online services of financial institutions under the name Municipality of Cantley.

Financial institutions
All banks and all credit unions. Note: Make sure that the identification number that appears on your tax slip is identical to the one that you have indicated to your financial institution.

By mail
Include your identification number or attach the detachable slip to the cheque.

Post-dated cheque
You can also send us post-dated cheques.

Payment dates

To pay your tax bill, the Municipality of Cantley offers you the option to pay in 3 interest-free* instalments:

A municipal tax bill greater than $300 can be paid in three instalments, on the following dates:

Payment of the first tax slip: March 8, 2018
Payment of the second tax slip: June 7, 2018
Payment of the third tax slip: September 6, 2018

A taxpayer who does not pay their first instalment by the specified deadline (30 days) does not lose the privilege of paying their taxes in three instalments. The interest rate, the percentage of which is set each year by the council (12% in 2018), applies to the entire balance of a municipal tax bill that has not been paid by the deadline. *Interest-free if the deadlines are respected.

Property assessment

The assessment roll is a summary of the inventory of buildings located on the territory of a municipality, assessed on the same basis and on the same date. In effect for three consecutive municipal fiscal years, it is primarily used to indicate the value of these buildings for the purposes of municipal and school property taxation.

Transfer taxes (welcome tax)

The property transfer tax is levied on any transfer of property. The buyer of the property is responsible for paying the transfer tax.

The rate of this tax, which is uniform across the province, is determined as follows:

0.5% of the tax base for the first $50,000.

1% for the excess tax base included between $50,001 and $250,000.

1.5% for the portion exceeding $250,001.

For the purchase of a property worth $300,000, therefore, the property transfer tax is determined as follows:

$50,000 x 0.005 = $250
$200,000 x 0.010 = $2,000
$50,000 x 0.015 = $750
Total = $3,000

This tax is payable in a single instalment within 30 days of the bill being sent by the Municipality.

The tax base for the transfer tax is calculated based on the highest of the following amounts:

  • The amount of compensation provided for the transfer of the property (purchase price);
  • The amount of compensation stipulated for the transfer of the property (for example, the total sale price minus the value of the furniture);
  • The amount of the market value of the property at the time of its transfer (the value appearing on the municipal assessment roll multiplied by a factor to determine the real market value of the property).
Seniors’ grant for municipal tax payments

A new seniors’ assistance program for paying municipal taxes has been available since January 1, 2016. Seniors who meet certain criteria can take advantage of a grant intended to partially compensate them for the increase in municipal taxes associated with the increase in the value of a property that significantly exceeds the average increase experienced by residential buildings across the Municipality.

A person will be able to receive a grant for a given year if they meet the following conditions:

1. They resided in Quebec on December 31st of the previous year.

2. They were 65 years of age or older before the start of the year.

3. Their household income for the tax year preceding the given year was $50,000 or less (amount indexed according to the CPI as of 2017).

4. They were, as of December 31st of the previous year, the owner of the assessment unit in question for at least fifteen consecutive years, including years when their spouse was the owner.

5. They are the person to whom the tax bill for the assessment unit in question is addressed.

6. They occupy the assessment unit as their primary residence.

7. The assessment unit in question is completely residential and only includes a single dwelling.

8. The increase in the value of the assessment unit resulting from the entry into effect of a new roll exceeds the average increase in the value of the residential properties in the municipality by at least 7.5%.

Please note that the Municipality will send a form by mail to all citizens who meet criteria 7 and 8.

The assistance will take the form of a grant awarded as part of the processing of income tax returns by Revenu Québec. The latter will be responsible for ensuring the eligibility of the taxpayer.

To take advantage of the grant for a given year, a person must apply for it on the income tax return that they must produce for the tax year that ended immediately before the start of the given year. For example, the grant for the property tax paid for the year 2018 can be requested on the income tax return for the 2017 tax year, normally presented in the spring of 2018.
