Taxes and assessment
Each year, tax bills are mailed out in early January. You can also view your tax bill online at municipal.acceo.com/immonet/Saint-Lambert.
If the total amount of your annual tax bill is $300 or more, you may pay it in four equal instalments. For 2023, the instalment due dates are: February 13, April 17, June 19 and August 21.
The payment counter is located at the Recreation Centre (600 Oak Avenue). If you have any questions, you can contact the Info-Taxes line at 450 466-3128.
If, for any reason, you do not receive your tax bill, you are still under obligation to pay your taxes within the deadlines stipulated by the City.
Following the sale of a property, the new owner will not receive a tax bill or a statement in his or her name. The purchaser must ask the notary for a copy of the tax bills for the current year and enquire as to the state of the account at the Info-tax line at 450 466-3128.
If you receive the tax bill after the sale of your home, please send it to the new owner or to your real estate agent so that they can forward it.
If your mortgage creditor pays your taxes, make sure that their name appears in the appropriate box on your tax bill. If your mortgage creditor’s name does not appear in this box, you should ask them to add your name to the list they send to the City for future payments. It is possible that your mortgage creditor will ask you to send them a copy of your bill to meet the tax payment deadlines.
The Ville de Saint-Lambert use the services of a portal that allows real estate professionals to obtain a tax certificate online. The unit cost per certificate is $75, and it will be accessible for 30 days.
You may already be registered on the portal for another city. If this is the case, you can use the same account as the one for the other city. If you do not have a professional account on the portal, you can create one at e-services.acceo.com/immosoft/controller/TAXES/index.html. Click on Create account and follow the instructions.
To facilitate your online requests for tax statements, you’ll note that the consultation fees for each transaction are automatically deducted from a refillable online wallet.
Payment of your taxes
Payment methods are as follows:
- In person at the Recration centre tax office in cash, by debit card, by cheque or money order made out to 'Ville de Saint-Lambert'.
- In person or via the Internet at most financial institutions (To find it more easily, enter only "lambert" in the search engine.)
- By mail to: Recreation centre, 600 Oak Avenue, Saint-Lambert, Quebec, J4P 2R6. Please note that last year we opted to go green and no longer include a return envelope when sending out tax bills.
To avoid interest charges, we strongly recommend that you allow at least three business days for payments made at financial institutions or by mail. Overdue accounts carry annual interest charges of 10% and an annual penalty of 5%.
If you want to retrieve a postdated check, you should call INFO-TAXES Saint-Lambert at 450 466-3128 at least 5 days before the date indicated on your cheque. Please note, however, that a fee of $10.00 per cheque will be added to your file for this transaction.
Please note that the Ville de Saint-Lambert will charge bank fees for NSF cheques. These fees are $40,00.
A copy of your tax bill is sufficient for income tax purposes or for your mortgage creditor. If you wish, you can come to the tax office in person to obtain a copy of your tax bill, at a cost of $5.00, or a payment receipt, at a cost of $5.00.
If you don’t pay your tax bill, your property will eventually be liable for tax proceedings due to non-payment of taxes.
Are you 65 or over? Has your tax bill increased? You may be eligible for assistance from the Quebec government to pay your municipal taxes.
Provided by Revenu Québec when you file your annual income tax return, this grant is offered to seniors to help offset an increase in the municipal taxes payable on their residence following a significant increase in its value.
For more information, to find out the eligibility criteria or to obtain the form, visit Revenu Québec’s website.
You can also call Revenu Québec at 418 266-1016.
Property tax rate
For 2023, the property tax rate has been set per $100 valuation, according to the following:
|Catégories||2023 rate ($)||Saint-Lambert ($)||Progressive cash payment program ($)||Agglomeration and CMM ($)|
|Residential buildings - 6 or more dwellings||1,0613||0.4471||0.0749||0.5393|
|Serviced vacant land||1.7859||0.7524||0.1261||0.9074|
When the valuation roll is deposited, if the value of your home entered on the roll increases, your taxes will not increase by the same amount. The tax rate takes into account the services provided by the City as well as the valuation of all buildings, not just the increase in value of your home.
Local or sector improvement tax
Local or sector improvement tax is used to pay back, over periods varying from 15 to 30 years, loans taken out by the municipality to finance part or all of the cost of new municipal infrastructures such as sewers, water mains, paving, and street lighting.
The work is first authorized by means of a by-law ordering the funds that need to be borrowed through the issue of renewable bonds for 5-, 7- or 10-year periods during the term of the by-law. The cost of the work is distributed on a pro-rata basis, usually according to property frontage or surface areas affected by the work.
The amount of sector tax shown on your municipal tax bill is the sum of all the by-laws affecting your property. It is important to point out that sector taxes vary across the municipality because not all new infrastructures were built at the same time.
Property assessment roll
The property assessment function is under the jurisdiction of the Longueuil agglomeration. For the territory of Saint-Lambert and the other related municipalities, it is overseen by the agglomeration’s Assessment Department.
Visit the Property Assessment page of the Ville de Longueuil website to consult the assessment roll, register a change of address, or apply for a review of your property assessment. You can also call the agglomeration’s Info-évaluation service at 450 463-7177.
