Council announces interest deferral program 
In April of 2020, Timmins Council temporarily suspended interest, penalties and charges on property taxes and water & sewer fees that was in effect until September as COVID-19 financial relief measure.  With the revocation of that program, all overdue accounts, as of October 30th, will be charged interest, penalties and charges on November 1st, 2020.

In an effort to continue to provide relief to those individuals and organizations that have been financially impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic, Council has now approved an Interest Free Payment Deferral Program.

This application based program will be for those Property Tax and Water & Sewer rate payers who meet the following criteria:
Must be in good standing with the tax and water account as of March 1, 2020;
Only the balance on account will be allowed to be amortized;
The amortization period will extend to December 31, 2022 however the rate payer can choose a reduced period;
Applications are required to be filled out;
Applications are due by December 1, 2020.

Application forms will be available on September 14 on our City website at https://www.timmins.ca/our_services/finance/c_o_v_i_d-19_relief_programs
