New application program launched to help Port Colborne residents with property bills

Posted by Corporate Communications on Thursday, June 25th, 2020

At their meeting on Monday, June 22, 2020, Council approved a new application program to help Port Colborne residents that have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with the relief of penalty charges and interest for the 2020 final property tax bill payments, water, and wastewater billings.

This new program will replace the City’s current relief program that has waived all penalties and interest charges for residents until Tuesday, June 30, 2020. Penalty and interest charges will resume on July 1, 2020, for outstanding tax, water, or wastewater bills. For those residents who have lost their jobs, or 70% of their income, they can complete an application and, if approved, will receive further relief on the penalty and interest for their property tax account and water/wastewater account(s) until Friday, October 30, 2020. For residents to be considered for the new relief program applications must be submitted by Friday, July 31, 2020.

For more information about the program, or to download the application form, visit www.portcolborne.ca/page/taxes.
