Property taxation is the main source of revenue for local governments. This revenue helps provide money to pay the costs of local government services such as general administration, planning, transportation, drainage, libraries, protective services, and parks & recreation. It is a tax levied on the value of land and improvements. Municipalities may levy property value taxes for their own needs, and can levy taxes on behalf of other public authorities.
Current Municipal Taxes
Property Taxes are mailed prior to the last week of May. If you do not receive your notice by mid June, please call the Village Office to request your tax bill. Non receipt of a tax notice does not excuse a property owner from payment.
Please ensure your Home Owner Grant (see below) is received by the due date to avoid any penalties. A 10% penalty on current outstanding taxes and unclaimed Home Owner Grants will be levied after the due date.
Home Owner Grant
The home owner grant reduces the amount of property tax you pay for your principal residence.
Permissive Tax Exemptions
A permissive tax exemption is a means for Council to support organizations within the community.
