COVID-19 Pandemic: Tax Relief Measures Extended by the Town of Brome Lake
Brome Lake, September 15, 2020 — The Town of Brome Lake announces that it will extend by three months the tax relief measures introduced earlier this year to address the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. Scheduled to end on September 30, these measures will be maintained until December 31, 2020, following a decision made by elected officials at the last monthly meeting.
The initiative now covers amounts to be collected between June 1st and the end of this year. For example, taxpayers, both residents and businesses, will not be charged interest or penalties for late payment of the third instalment of the municipal tax bill, which is due on Wednesday, September 16.
“The current uncertainty has prompted Council to maintain the status quo,” says Town of Brome Lake Mayor Richard Burcombe. “By doing so, we are ensuring that we are helping our citizens who are feeling the full impact of the pandemic by giving them more flexibility. Having said that, I am asking taxpayers who are in a position to pay their balance to do so as normally expected.”
In conclusion, the Town of Brome Lake reminds citizens who wish to take advantage of these measures that they must review the parameters of their payment (if programmed in advance) with their financial institution. For post-dated cheques, the Town can be reached at 450 243-6111.
