Auditor confirmation letters have been sent out by Cogent Chartered Professional Accounts LLP to all ratepayers that had outstanding balances owing on December 31st, 2018.

Anyone whose payment for 2018 taxes was received in January 2019 will still be receiving an auditor's confirmation letter from our auditor. These letters are not account statements and anyone who still has an amount outstanding will have interest penalty accumulated on the outstanding amount. Please contact the RM office to obtain the full amount outstanding with the penalty prior to making a payment.

Tax Notices:

Wild Parsnip: wild parsnip
