Tax invoices are mailed at the beginning of each year to the owners who are registered on the assessment roll. They are deposited in the Dossier citoyen Voilà! for citizens who have joined the e-tax account or are mailed.
The tax rates are determined annually by the city’s operating budget, which is adopted by the council members during December of the preceding year. If there is a change in the property value assessment, the owner will receive a tax adjustment account during the year.

What happens if you default on a payment
If you fail to make your payments on the due dates, you will be required to immediately pay the entire annual amount. In addition, interest and a penalty will be added to the outstanding balance.
Are you a new owner?
The tax bill produced at the begining of the year remains in effect throughout the year. It is important to note that the City of Shannon does not issue any new tax invoices following a real estate transaction.
Due to the processing times for updating the assessment roll, it may happen that the tax invoice for your property is sent to the name of the previous owner. This does not in any way relieve you of your obligation to pay the taxes attached to this property. Any payment made after the due dates will incur additional interest charges (at an annual rate of 15%).
As you are responsible for paying taxes related to your property, it is important to make sure that they have been paid or will be paid by the due dates.
We recommend that you take the time to read your tax bill carefully and to contact us with any questions.
Following a change in the value of a property during the year, a tax adjustment account may be issued. When the total amount exceeds $300, this tax bill is payable in two equal instalments. Otherwise, it is payable in a single payment within 30 days of the date the tax adjustment account is issued.
