Deferring the Second Instalment of 2017 Annual Property Taxes Due To Flooding

Portions of Montréal were hit with major flooding in the spring of 2017. Hundreds of property owners living in flood zones were affected.

In view of this exceptional situation, Montréal’s Executive Committee adopted a resolution on May 18, 2017 allowing owners of affected properties located in areas flooded during the spring of 2017 to defer payment of the second instalment of their 2017 annual property taxes to December 1, 2017, without incurring interest or penalty.

Only owners whose property is located in the flood zones identified by emergency services or the boroughs concerned and whose building has been affected may defer payment on the second instalment on their 2017 property taxes until December 1, 2017, without interest or penalty. At the moment, the boroughs concerned are Ahuntsic-Cartierville, L’Île-Bizard-Sainte-Geneviève, Pierrefonds-Roxboro.

Based on information received, the Service des finances has identified an initial group of eligible owners as of May 30, 2017.

The number of eligible owners is, however, expected to rise over the next few weeks. Upon receiving additional information and after analyzing and validating data, other owners will become eligible to defer their second instalment. The Service des finances will contact all owners concerned by July 30, 2017.

Lists of eligible owners (in french):
       Borough of Ahuntsic-Cartierville
       Borough of L'Île-Bizard-Sainte-Geneviève
       Borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro

Individual Communication
Throughout this operation, which will continue until July 30, 2017, the eligible owners will be contacted individually according to the status of their file:

  •  Payment made by mortgagee. 
  •  Accounts for wich the first instalment has been made, whether or not a payment has been made by the June 1, 2017 deadline.
  •  Accounts for wich the first instalment has not been paid or has not been paid in full.
