Ratepayers help the municipality provide the services that make the R.M. of Piney a great place to live. Tax rates are set annually by Council when creating the annual financial plan.

Your 2020 property taxes are due Friday, October 30th.

You may pay any time before October 30th via cheque, debit/credit or over the phone or online payments. We only accept online payments through Credit Unions or Caisse. The RM does not accept e-transfers. Payments can be made in Canadian currency to: The Rural Municipality of Piney. Please check with your bank before you do an online payment to make sure you are entering the correct payee.

If you have changed your address, we ask that you call to update your account.

Arrears

After October 30th, penalties are added to the outstanding balance on the first day of every month, calculated at the rate of 1.25% per month. If there is an outstanding balance for over 24 months, your roll number will be registered with Tax Sale and heavier fines will be charged to your account until all the fees are paid.

Arrears and penalties have been calculated up to May 31st and are included in the arrears shown on your tax bill. However, additional penalties may have occurred since the tax bills were printed so be sure to call to confirm your balance before sending a payment by mail.

Transferring land ownership?

If you have sold your property or transferred ownership, the remaining owing property taxes stay with the property. Talk to your lawyer about transferring the remaining taxes owing to the new owners.

2020 Tax Information

Your property taxes accumulate based on the value your property is assessed at. Council sets the mill rate annually at their financial plan meeting, and individual property taxes are calculated accordingly. \

School tax rate is not determined by the RM. The municipality has no control over the amount of school tax you pay.
