If you are receiving this newsletter for the first time and you are not the tax professional in your municipality, please be sure to pass this on - they will appreciate it! 

Welcome to 2023! We are sure everyone is swamped with year end duties.  Look to your colleagues if you need some help. Check the website for tools that may help. Don't stress, stay calm and carry on!


Bring your coffee and meet us at the upcoming Webinar

January 18 at 10am

Overview of the Tax Notification Process

In preparation for the upcoming March 31 Tax Notification deadline, we have brought back two presenters from Municipal Affairs (MA) to give us an overview.

The presentation will be about 45 minutes with 15 minutes open to the floor for questions and discussion.

If your membership payment has not been processed, you may have to email to register for this webinar.


This is available to members only. Members can log in to access.

Membership Renewal

Its a New Year and our first renewal period with the website! We thank you for your patience, especially if you have received more emails than you would like! We are working our way through the process and hope that 2024 will be seamless.

When you login to your profile please be sure to fill out as many fields in your profile that is available. This helps all members to reach out to groups of people with like profiles.

To enhance our Members Directory we are looking for your input on what you would like to search for when looking for another member to reach out too.  This information would be a field that members would update in their Profile.

For example, if your municipality passes Supplementary levies, Business Improvement Levies, Subclass Tax Class 1, or Subclass Tax Class 2 bylaws we can list those features for you in your profile and you would select what all applies. Using that information should allow us to custom build the Membership Directory so you can search on those items and it’ll pull up the members who checked that off. This would provide a list for members to email directly, other members for support or inquiries.

Please email for any subjects you’d like to have added to searchable fields in the Membership Profiles to help find commonalities amongst each other.

Member Spotlight
