Municipal tax bill

This year, citizens will only receive ONE TAX BILL. Your water consumption bill now appearsdirectly on the municipal tax bill (property tax).

Your municipal tax bill includes two levels of taxation. One amount represents taxes for local services and another amount is a quote-part related to the Agglomeration of Montréal services (such as police and fire department and public transportation).


Tax bills were sent on February 14th. However, there seems to have been a delivery problem with Canada Post that is currently being investigated by them. If you would like a copy of your tax bill by e-mail, please write to the taxation department at The first instalment is due on February 21st, 2019.

Mortage Companies

If you have an agreement with your mortgage company for the payment of your tax bill, and if they have informed us accordingly, a copy of your bill will be forwarded to them.

If you sell your property during the year, please provide the purchaser with the tax bill for the year in progress so he/she can make payments, if need be.  The tax bill is directly linked to the BUILDING and not to the owner. This is why we will not be issuing the tax statement in the new owner’s name.

Your municipal tax bill includes two levels of taxation: the amount for municipal taxes for the year 2018 is calculated on the property value of the unit inscribed on the roll filed on September 14th, 2016.  This serves as the tax base for years 2017-2018-2019. 


Agglomeration vs Local jurisdiction

Since January 1st, 2006, the City of Montreal provides citizens with agglomeration services and manages a variety of equipment for the whole island of Montreal. To reflect this, the general property tax for agglomeration services is applied to all taxpayers on the Island of Montreal. However, local taxes paid by all taxpayers in each “demerged” city must also be taken into consideration.
