The Property Taxes are made up of three main components: Education Taxes, Grey County Taxes and Municipal Township Taxes. These taxes are used to provide the Township of Chatsworth residents with a variety of services including: road maintenance, snow removal, emergency services, arenas, planning and development, and much more. Property taxes are determined by multiplying the Current Value or “Assessment” of your property by the annual Tax Rate for the property type or “Property Class” plus any applicable special charges.
The Township of Chatsworth issues two tax bills per year; an interim tax bill and a final tax bill. Each of these is split into two payment instalments. The interim tax bill is based on 50% of the prior year’s total tax bill. The interim tax instalment payments are due the end of February and April each year. The final tax bill is calculated using the current year’s tax rates set by council. The interim tax bill is then deducted from the final bill calculation, and then the balance is split into two instalments. The final tax bill instalments are due the end of July and October each year. Non-receipt of your tax bill does not waive any liability for payment of taxes or penalty/interest charged. Arrears are due immediately. Payments are due on the due dates and in the amounts indicated on your tax bill. If taxes are not paid on the due date, a penalty of 1.25% will be charged on the first day of each calendar month until paid in full. The Finance department has no authority to waive penalty or interest for any reason.
