The Town of Hudson has established that municipal taxes can be paid in three (3) equal installments. Payment dates for 2017 are:
1st installment on: March 29
2nd installment on: June 27
3rd installment on: September 25
No collection remedy may be instituted against a debtor who makes the payments within prescribed deadlines. Interest is charged on any late payment, and when special notices are sent to property owners whose taxes are in arrears, the bill will also include an amount of $25 to cover administration costs.
Note that when a payment is not made when due, interest and penalties apply only on the amount of the unpaid installment.
Sale of properties for non-payment of taxes
The Cities and Towns Act empowers municipalities to sell a property for non-payment of municipal or school taxes. Although this recovery method requires no prior judgement, it is governed by strict procedures.
This information is provided to facilitate understanding of the provisions of the Cities and Towns Act(RSQ, c C-19). Please refer to the Act, specifically sections 511-538 for the official provisions.
Residents have four ways to pay their taxes:
By mail: Cheque payable to the Town of Hudson
In person: At Town Hall, cash, cheque or Interac No credit card payment can be accepted.
At your financial institution: With your detachable coupon
Online at the website of your bank: Please identify your account with the 18 digit Matricule/File number.
Remember to allow sufficient time. Any payment received after deadlines will incur interest charges and penalties.
Please note that there will be no reminder for the 2nd and 3rd installments.
Adjustment of a property valuation
When you undertake construction, renovation or demolition affecting the value of your property, the property valuation will be adjusted.
The Town may then send a supplementary tax notice for the current year or earlier.
