If you’re facing financial problems due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can apply to defer payment of your 2021 property taxes until December 15, 2021.
Financial problems may include:
- Prolonged suspension of pay
- Loss of employment
- Extreme business revenue loss
- Business closure
- Insolvency or bankruptcy
To apply for the deferral, your property can’t have tax arrears prior to March 2020. You must also pay taxes directly to the City of Mississauga and not through your mortgage company.
If you’re enrolled in the Preauthorized Tax Payment (PTP) Plan, your account will be removed and you’ll have to submit a new application to re-enroll for 2022.
Financial institutions can’t apply for the deferral.
You can make property tax payments at any time during the year. Penalties and interest will not apply to your 2021 taxes as long as we receive your full payment by the December 15 deadline.
If you still owe any 2020 or prior year’s property taxes, penalties and interest will be applied to this balance until you’ve paid in full.
