AMOUNTS PAYABLE
The May 1 deadline has passed to receive the early-pay discount. If you have not yet paid your SSID tax, the non-discounted amount is now payable, as indicated on the chart on your tax notice. Interest on 2021 taxes will be applied on March 1 2022, as directed by the provincial government.

TAX CLASSES
Your tax notice will show 3 taxes for the 2021 calendar year. Your property is subject to either 2 or 3 of the taxes. The Connection Tax is only applicable to Parcels that have an Approved Connection by which water can be supplied from the SSID Waterworks. The District Tax and Asset Renewal Levy are both applicable to all taxable Parcels in the Improvement District.

TOLLS
Residents connected to the waterworks are allotted up to 100 cubic metres of water per calendar year. Those who use more water than the year's allotment are invoiced an Excess Use Toll in January of the following year. Tolls not paid by the February 28 deadline are subject to a 20 percent penalty. The Toll may go up or down each year, as determined by the Board of Trustees. At the end of 2020, Trustees set the 2020 Excess Use Toll at $1.00 per each cubic metre over 100 cubic metres. If you did not receive an Excess Toll invoice on January 2, 2021, you did not exceed your 2020 allotment.
