INFORMATION FOR TAXPAYERS CONCERNING SCHOOL TAXES
Amendments to school taxation
According to Article 310 of the Education Act adopted December 14th, 2006, the school board, beginning in 2007-2008, averages the increase over a two, three or four year period in order to alleviate the impact of the considerable escalation of municipal property evaluations.
This Act is also instrumental in limiting the increase of school taxes imposed on municipal taxpayers to the average growth of the expenditures of the school board.
2020-2021 School Taxes
- The Government of Québec has set the tax rate. As declared by the law on public instruction, the unique tax rate calculated by the Ministry has been established for all resident owners.
- Riverside School Board covers six (6) French Service Centers.
- Required by law, the tax rate appears on your invoice:
Tax rate per 100$ of evaluation 0.1054

French or English Language School Board?
- If your children attend a school under the jurisdiction of Riverside School Board, you must pay school taxes to Riverside School Board (Education Act, Section 304). To signify this situation, a Notice to taxpayers must be submitted to us before April 1st.
- If your children attend schools under the jurisdiction of Riverside School Board AND a school under the jurisdiction of a French school board, you must pay school taxes to both school boards. The school taxes are proportional to the number of children admitted to each school board (Education Act, Section 304).
- If you do not have children attending a school under the jurisdiction of a French or English school board, you may pay school taxes to the school board of your choice. Such a choice must be submitted in writing by April 1st (see Notice to Taxpayers). However, if you have not specified a preference, and your name is registered on the electoral list of a particular school board, you must pay school taxes to that school board (Education Act, Sections 305 and 306).
New or Previous Owner?
- If you are the new owner of a property, you must pay the tax bill even if it is addressed to the previous owner in order to avoid paying interest charges and inform us of the name of the new owner.
- If you have sold your property in recent months, return your tax bill to us as soon as possible with the mention SOLD.
- No official receipt will be issued. It is recommended that you retain the upper part of your tax bill for your records as it may be of use for your provincial income tax declaration.
- Bank administration charges for NSF cheques will be applied to the school tax bill, as well as administration fees for the withdrawal or deferral of postdated cheques.
