The Shaunavon RCMP would like to offer a new online crime reporting tool for the reporting of NON-URGENT crime matters. *If a crime is in-progress or the matter is an emergency, citizens are still requested to call 911 to receive the appropriate Police response.* The RCMP recognize that people have different schedules and not all crimes need to be reported immediately.
The Town of Shaunavon would like to kindly remind residents that the deadline for payment of 2021 utilities and property taxes is swiftly approaching.
Property taxes and Utilities are due on or before December 31, 2021. Please ensure that payments are received in our office on or before this day. If you are mailing a cheque or paying online, please allow 5-7 business days for processing payment.
*If payments are sent on December 31st, but not received in our office until January, they will be considered LATE*
If Property Tax payment is not received by December 31st, there will be a 12% penalty added onto each unpaid tax amount on each tax account. “Tips on How to avoid the 12% penalty” include setting up monthly payments, checking online banking schedules, and making sure to allow ample time if sent by mail.
MONTHLY PRE-AUTHORIZED PAYMENT PLANS
The Town of Shaunavon offers a voluntary Monthly Tax Payment Plan as well as a Monthly Utility Billing Payment Plan to help make those large payments easier to handle.
1. To qualify for either plan, the account being authorized must be paid in full by December 31st, 2021.
2. Utility monthly payments will be based on actual costs for those that are billed monthly. The monthly amount for Quarterly billings will be the quarterly bill divided by 3 months to always remain current.
3. The plan for taxes is based on the previous year’s taxes divided by twelve months. After the new tax levy is determined, or if any other adjustments are made; the remaining monthly payments are adjusted, if required. No discounts will be granted, nor penalties applied to tax accounts participating in the plan.
4. Applications can be found on our website, or at the Town Office and MUST BE received BY YEAR-END (December 31st, 2021) at the Town office.
