Montreal West issues bills for water tax based on consumption. Water readings must be submitted annually either online or via the form that is delivered to every household. In the absence of a reply, water tax bills are based on estimated usage and a $50 fee is charged to the citizen.
The water tax bill for the past year is payable by the current owner, even when there is a property transfer. Therefore, we strongly recommend that your notary ensures that an adjustment calculation is made for water consumption up to the sale date. Your notary should already have contacted us for this information.
Please fill in the line below with the reading found under the water meter cover and submit it by September 24, 2018. In the absence of a reply, water tax bills are based on estimated usage and a non refundable $50 fee is added to the bill.
Should you be unable to read your meter, contact the Public Works department.
