About Property Taxes

In Ontario, all municipalities collect property taxes from the owners of buildings and land located within their boundaries. These revenues are used to provide residents with municipal services. Municipalities also collect the school tax and the upper-tier municipal tax (counties). 

The Municipality of Casselman property taxes include these three elements: 

  • Lower-tier municipal tax - rate is set by the Municipality
  • School tax - rate is set by the province 
  • Upper-tier municipal tax - rate is set by the United Counties of Prescott-Russell 

The amount of property taxes paid by individual property owners is based on the property’s market value assessment, class and tax rate. The value of every property is assessed by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) in accordance with the Ontario Assessment Act.

Billing and Payment Options 

Tax bills are issued four times a year: in March, May, August and October. The first ones are interim invoices based on estimates, as budgets and tax rates may not have been adopted yet. The final invoice is issued in August and includes special fees.

Change of Ownership or Address

If the property has changed ownership, send the tax bill to the new owner or return it to our office, indicating who now owns the property. 

If your mailing address changes, please advise our office in writing. Failure to receive a tax bill does not discharge you from paying it or any penalties or interest charged at a rate of 1.25% per month for late payment.
