It is important to note these dates, since no reminders will be sent to building owners. Any payment made after the deadlines will result in the addition of interest charges and penalties at the combined rate of 12%. The Municipality of the Township of Hemmingford is not responsible for delays or omissions in the delivery of mail, regardless of the payment method used.

In addition to the annual tax bill, it is possible that you may receive one or more supplementary accounts during the year. These accounts follow the adjustment of the value of your property after renovations, for example, or any other event that affects the value of your property. Each additional account has its own due dates.

New Owners

If you purchased a property in the Township of Hemmingford during the year, you will not receive a new tax bill in your name. The municipal tax account is a document produced at the beginning of the year and remains in effect throughout the year. It relates to the building and not to the owners.

The buyer becomes responsible for all future payments on the date of the transaction and not receiving a tax bill does not in any way relieve the new owner of the obligation to pay the municipal taxes according to the deadlines set by the municipality. When you sign the deed of sale, the notary will inform you about the taxes payable. To avoid incurring interest charges, to receive a copy of the the tax account statement, or to have more information on the balance due, write to tresor.canton@hemmingford.ca .

In the event of non-payment, or if tax balances remain unpaid, the Municipality will always contact the last registered owner.

Please also refer to the section regarding duties on the transfer of immovables.

Any delay will result in interest and a penalty.

Duties on the transfer of immovables

ACT RESPECTING DUTIES ON TRANSFERS OF IMMOVABLES
chapter D-15.1

Duties on the transfers of immovables
(commonly known as: Welcome taxes)

The duties on transfers of immovables, is an amount that all municipalities in Quebec must collect when an immovable located on its territory is transferred. These duties are billed separately from the municipal tax bill and are payable by the buyer in a single payment 30 days following the date of the invoice.

D-15.1 – ACT RESPECTING DUTIES ON TRANSFERS OF IMMOVABLES

Important information concerning property transfer duties:

Has the immovable you are acquiring been registered at the Quebec registry office (registre foncier du Quebec)?  

If YES:  You will receive your transfer duty tax by mail.  It will be mailed to the address of the immovable acquired, unless otherwise stipulated.

If NO:  It is your responsibility to remit the form ‘divulgation des transferts d’immeubles non-inscrits au registre foncier’ found below, to the municipality within 90 days of acquisition*.

* Please note that if the form is not remitted to the municipality within the delay, Revenu Québec will impose an additional duty equal to 150% of the transfer duty on a transferee (buyer) who fails to file the disclosure notice.

Transfer duty calculations:

The transfer duties are imposed on the greater value of the following amounts:
–    the amount of the consideration furnished for the transfer of the immovable (purchase price);
–    the amount of the consideration stipulated for the transfer of the immovable;
–    the amount of the market value of the immovable at the time of its transfer (municipal evaluation)

Once you determine the imposed amount, follow the bracket calculations to find out how much you can expect to pay in transfer duties.

Bracket amounts for 2022:

First – $0 to $53,200 at a rate of 0.5%.
Second – $53,200.01 to $266,200 at a rate of 1%.
