Tax bills are in the mail for residents and businesses in the Municipality of Pictou County. Payment is due by October 15, 2019 and can be paid online or at our Administration Building at 46 Municipal Drive from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Tax bills are mailed twice a year, covering the period of April 1st to March 31st annually. The first bill is mailed in April at a time when Council has not yet set its tax rates. The bill is calculated using your current assessment value which is then multiplied by the previous year's tax rate x 50 percent.
In August, you will receive your second bill. By this time, Council will have set the tax rates and the total taxes due for the year are calculated. The tax rate for the Municipality of Pictou County for the 2019-2020 has remained unchanged from the previous year at .81 residential and $1.82 commercial.

Any payment made in the April bill will be deducted from your August bill. More information on payment can found on our website
