VILLAGE OF CHAUVIN TAX DEFFERAL
COVID-19 has caused hardship for all property owners. The province required municipalities choose between a deferral of non-residential education property taxes until September 30th (in our case, a three month deferral) or a combination of non-residential education and municipal taxes that is effectively equivalent. Both of these options excluded residential properties.
Council chose the latter and in fairness to all taxpayers, has deferred the due date of all 2020 property taxes (residential and non-residential) to August 13, 2020 .
This option exceeds the provincial requirements.
TAX NOTICES WERE MAILED ON MAY 4, 2020
