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.
When acquiring a property, make sure that the portion of the municipal taxes covering the period before your purchase has been paid by the previous owner as you will become liable for any amounts due. Usually, the municipal tax adjustments between the seller and the buyer are done at the notary’s office.
The city will not issue a new tax bill when a property is sold. It is your responsibility to obtain a copy from the former owner or the city by contacting the Finance Department. The tax bill is only issued once a year and is connected to the property, not the owner.
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.
