Payment of property taxes can be made in several different ways:
Please make cheques payable to "The Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc".
Penalty of 1.25% for late payment of taxes will be charged on the first day of default and on the first day of each calendar month thereafter, until paid. The Municipality is not responsible for bank or postal delays. Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse a taxpayer from the responsibility of payment or from the liability of penalty charge for late payment. The Tax Collector has no authority to waive or alter penalty and/or interest charges for any reason.
Municipal policy regarding returned payments states: if two returned payments are received within a 1-year period, an administration fee of $35 will be charged. If a third returned payment is received within the 1-year period, an administration fee of $45 will be charged and further payments will only be accepted in the form of cash, phone/internet banking, money order, bank draft or certified cheque. If you are on the pre-authorized plan, you will be removed.
The municipality offers two pre-authorized property tax payment programs. To qualify, all taxes must be up to date and you must enrol at least ten (10) days before withdrawal. There are two plans to choose from: four automatic withdrawals per year on the installment due date, or 12 monthly withdrawals.
