School tax bills are being mailed to Montreal home owners next week and they're up from last year.
The Island School Council says the 2.5 % increase this year can be attributed to indexation and an increase in the number of children enrolled at the elementary level.
The increase will generate an additional $12 million for the five school boards on the Island of Montreal bringing their collective budget to $460 million.
Tax bills of less then $300 will have to be paid by July 31st.
Tax bills of more then $300 can be paid in two equal instalments with the second instalment due in October 29th.
