Using Online Banking
You can set the Village up as ‘payee’ using online banking. For taxes you will need your roll number and, depending on your bank, you may have to add zeros at the beginning of the number sequence to meet the number of numbers required by the bank. For example – your roll # is 123456, bank requires 8 numbers, add two (2) zeros at the start so your number becomes: 00123456 If you have issues setting up a ‘payee’ please contact your bank directly for assistance.
If paying by e-Transfer at [email protected], please make the answer to the security question: salmo2022
***When paying at the bank or through online banking please be aware that it can take 3 to 10 business days for your payment to be received at the Village Office. Payment must be received at the Village Office prior to the due date of July 4, 2022 for all classes.***

Important Information about the Homeowner Grant
If you are eligible for the Provincial Home Owner Grant, please ensure that the online application is completed prior to July 2, 2022 to avoid a penalty of 10% on the grant portion. Please note that the Home Owner Grant application must be completed each and every year in which you are eligible for the grant. It is a very simple process, but if necessary
A penalty will be applied on the amount of the Home Owner Grant for any unclaimed, unsigned or incomplete applications, as this will be considered equivalent to unpaid taxes. To avoid the penalty on the Grant portion of your taxes, the Home Owner Grant must be claimed even if a payment on outstanding taxes is not made.
