Tax Payment Information
NEW TAX PAYMENT PLAN OPTION
The Summer Village of West Cove Administration and Council have developed a tax payment plan for residents. This tax payment plan is available to any resident within the Summer Village. If you are interested in joining, there will be an application/agreement form to fill out and send back to the Administration office. The program works that your taxes are split into twelve payments over the course of the year so that by the time your tax notice arrives in your mail box, approximately half of your taxes have already been paid.
FIGURING OUT YOUR MONTHLY TAX INSTALLMENT PAYMENT
You can figure out your January to June monthly tax installment payment by using your prior year's Tax Notice which will have your Tax Roll # and the total amount of your annual Tax Levy. If you take the Total Tax Levy and Divide the amount by 12 months, you will then have your monthly payment from January to June of the current year.
Along with your filled out TAX PAYMENT PLAN FORM, we will require a void cheque or a form from your financial institution that provides the banking information required to automatically take payments from your account on the 28th of each month (Note: Post-Dated Cheques are not accepted.) Please mail or email your form & void cheque to the administration office.
If you require assistance or have any further questions, please contact the administration office:
