To provide some relief to residents, the City of Saint-Lambert is suspending interest and penalties on outstanding taxes until March 31.
To provide some relief to residents during this period of COVID-19, Saint-Lambert’s City Council decided in a special meeting on February 1 to suspend penalties and reduce the interest rate to 0% on taxes until March 31, 2021.
“Due to the exceptional circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting financial pressure many people are feeling, we want to take this concrete action to support our community. In so doing, we will not be penalizing those who need a little more time to cover this expense,” said Mayor Pierre Brodeur.
This announcement comes just before the first tax payment deadline, which is February 8. We remind you that the 2021 tax due dates are:
- February 8, 2021
- April 12, 2021
- June 14, 2021
- August 16, 2021
Under normal circumstances, an interest rate of 7% and a penalty of 5% per year would be charged on the unpaid balance after the payment deadline.
