Gatineau is postponing, again this year, the payment of municipal taxes and business permits.
If the city council goes ahead with such a measure, the deadline for the two payments would be postponed from February and June to April and August.
Elected officials will be called upon to vote during the next municipal council meeting next Tuesday.
The postponement would be without interest and penalties, which could result in losses of up to $ 1.3 million for the City of Gatineau.
“This is a decision which, for us, will allow businesses and citizens, who are hard hit by the crisis, to have some leeway in managing their spending. We know that, in the case of businesses, it can be several tens of thousands of dollars, and for citizens, several thousand dollars. “
– Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin, Mayor of Gatineau
The mayor still invites citizens who can to pay their taxes as soon as possible.
