Late Payment Charges

Payments are due on the date and in the amounts indicated on the tax bill. Arrears are due immediately.  Discounts for advance payments are not available.  To avoid late payment charges, your property tax payment must be received by our office on or before the due date.

A late payment charge of 1.25 per cent is added on the unpaid amount of an instalment on the first day after the instalment due date and on the first day of each calendar month until paid. Penalty and interest rates are set by City by-law pursuant to the Municipal Act and cannot be waived or altered.  Payments not cleared by your financial institution will result in a service charge being added to your account in accordance with the City’s Fees and Charges By-law. Please refer to the Fees Section for a list of fees and charges.
