Municipal taxes

Methods of payment

In accordance with An act respecting municipal taxation, if your bill is greater than $300, you can choose to pay it in full on the first payment due date, or in two equal payments on the two due dates determined by Council for the current year.

For this year the due dates are:

  • 1st payment – February 28, 2017
  • 2nd payment – May 31, 2017

If your bill is less than $300, it must be paid in full on the first due date of February 28, 2017.

Payments received after this date will be subject to a 5 % interest rate and 5 % penalty rate per year.

No reminder will be sent out for the second payment.

Online banking payments:

You can pay your tax bill online through your bank account, as long as the service is provided by your financial institution. Make sure to enter your 10 digit reference number, no space. This number appears on the right hand corner of your payment stub. In order to avoid interest and late penalty fees, schedule your transaction in advance, and allow two business days for payment processing.

Payment at bank tellers or banking machines:

You can pay your bill at most financial institutions. Some may refuse to accept your payment so check with your bank first. If you pay through a banking machine allow at least 48 hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, for the payment to be processed thus avoiding interest and penalty charges.

Payment by mail:

Please mail your payment to:

City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux

Tax Department

12,001 De Salaberry Boulevard

Dollard-des-Ormeaux (Québec) H9B 2A7

and include your cheque or money order made out to City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux with the payment stub from the bottom of your bill. Allow enough time for your payment to be received before the due date to avoid interest and penalty charges.

We suggest you consider enclosing your second payment with a post-dated cheque.

Payment at the City Hall Service Counter:

You can pay at the City Hall service counter, Monday to Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. We accept cheques, debit cards and cash. Credit cards are not accepted.

You can also drop off your payment in the mail slot located at the entrance of City Hall.

DUTIES OF TRANSFERS OF IMMOVABLES

Definition

Under provincial legislation, a transfer tax must be collected by the City for the transfer of any immovable located in the City.

Calculation of transfer taxes

The rate of these duties is set as follows:

  • 0,5 % on that part of the taxation basis which does not exceed $50,000
  • 1 % on that part of the taxation basis which is in excess of $50,000 without exceeding $250,000
  • 1,5 % on that part of the taxation basis which exceeds $250,000

For example, for a property of a $400,000 value, the transfer tax would be:

  • $50,000 x 0,005 = $250
  • $200,000 x 0,010 = $2,000
  • $150,000 x 0.015 = $2,250
  • Total: $4,500

Payment of transfer taxes

This tax is payable in one instalment within thirty (30) days of the mailing of the tax bill by the City. The taxation basis for transfer duties will be the greatest of the following amounts:

  • The amount of the counterpart provided for the transfer of the immovable;
  • The amount of the counterpart stipulated for the transfer of the immovable; or
  • The amount of market value at the time of the transfer of the immovable. As mentioned in the Act respecting duties on transfers of immovables, the market value is the product obtained by multiplying the value entered on the roll for the unit or part corresponding to the transferred immovable, as the case may be, by the factor of the roll established.
