Your property taxes pay for a variety of services at the Township, County and Educational levels. The most important source of revenue for the Township is property taxation. The Township of North Kawartha processes 4,900 tax notices annually and this number can vary slightly each year. Municipal taxes that are collected fund Township operations such as fire and emergency services, road maintenance, snow removal recreation centres, garbage pickup, waste removal, libraries and parks.
The Finance Department processes, administers and collects Township property taxes. The current year's tax rate multiplied by the assessed value of your property determines the amount of property tax levied each year.
If you require a copy of your tax bill please contact the Tax Collector or call 705-656-4445 extension 233.
Tax certificates are available by contacting the Tax Collector. There is a fee of $30.00 per roll number.
Remove a Name from a Tax Bill
In the case of a death, a death certificate and a copy of the deed showing joint tenancy is required to remove a name from a tax bill (not the deed). A deed is required for all other changes.
To get a receipt for your property taxes paid please send a self addressed stamped envelope and we will mail one to you. You can also pick one up at the municipal office.
