The municipality has sent out its 2013 property tax notices which must be paid in just over a month.

The tax notices are due Friday, July 5 at 4 p.m. and the homeowner grants, if eligible, must also be claimed by that time.

For those who are late with their payments, the consequences can be significant as a 10 per cent penalty will be added to the outstanding current taxes after July 5.

Taxes must be paid at Municipal Hall or online or through telephone banking.

There are property tax deferment programs in place.

Those older than 55, widowed or receiving a disability allowance under the Disability Benefits Program Act may qualify.

Families supporting a dependent child under the age of 18 may also qualify.

If an unpaid tax bill remains outstanding the property can be put up for sale for the amount outstanding.

The addresses and prices will be listed on the municipal website and in the Summerland Review by mid September.

The property is sold to the highest bidder, but the purchaser has no legal rights to the property until one year after the date of the sale.
