2020 Notices of Tax Levy will be issued at the end of March 2020, and will show the amounts payable.
Payment to SSID may be made by Interac etransfer to email@example.com or by cheque or money order payable to Savary Shores Improvement District, mailed to SSID, 2785 Vancouver Blvd, Savary Island, BC V0N 2G0.
Your etransfer confirmation, cheque copy, or money order copy, is your receipt.
Your tax notice will show a chart with the discounted amount payable on or before May 1 2020. Taxes not paid by May 1 will be payable at the full (non-discounted) amount to be shown on the chart. Interest on 2020 taxes will be applied on March 1 2021, as directed by the provincial government.
Your tax notice will show 3 taxes for the 2020 calendar year. Your property will be 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 Savary Shores Improvement District.
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 2019, Trustees set the 2019 Excess Use Toll at $1.00 per each cubic metre over 100 cubic metres.
