Monthly Tax Payment Plan
Take advantage of the Tax Payment Plan. By making equal monthly installments, you will avoid penalties and the need for a large lump-sum payment. Contact the office for more information at 587-873-5765.
The Minimum Municipal Tax is in place in order to assist in a more cost-effective and efficient distribution of municipal expenses to each property owner. The same municipal services are provided to each property within the Summer Village regardless of the assessed value of the property, therefore, implementing a minimum tax helps to equitably allocate the cost of all services required to maintain and sustain the municipality. While the vacant properties will see the largest tax increases this year due to the minimum tax payable, the intention of this is to encourage the development of these properties throughout the municipality.
