The following are key-dates that will impact Utility and Property Tax payments received by The Village of Hazelton:
Using the above dates as a guideline ensure your payments are received by their respective due dates.
Property owners are responsible to ensure their accounts are zero balances.
Allow ample time for delivery if you are mailing in your payment - post marks on mailed remittances will not be considered as proof of payment or date of payment.
The Village of Hazelton accepts the following methods of payment:
In 2021, Council passed a bylaw eliminating a discount for utility bills paid on time, and implementing a 5% penalty for utility bills paid late. Please pay by the deadline indicated on your utility bill to avoid the penalty.
Cheques that are rejected by your financial institution for any reason are considered non-payments and will be subject to penalty or interest charges and a $25 service charge by the Village of Hazelton.
Current year property taxes that remain unpaid at December 31 become taxes in arrears on January 1, and will be charged daily interest until paid. Interest rates are established under Section 11(3) of the Taxation (Rural Area) Act and Section 245, 246 and 254 of the Community Charter.
