AMOUNTS PAYABLE
There is a May 1 deadline to receive the early-pay discount on 2023 taxes. For payments received by SSID after May 1, the non-discounted amount will be payable, and will be indicated on the chart on your tax notice. Interest on 2023 taxes will be applied on March 1 2024, as directed by the provincial government.

TAX CLASSES
Your tax notice will show either a Class A or Class B for the 2023 calendar year. 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 2022, Trustees will set the 2022 amount owing for each cubic metre over 100 cubic metres. If you do not receive an Excess Toll invoice on January 2, 2023, you did not exceed your 2022 allotment.
