Interim tax bills
Interim property tax bills are issued in early February and reflect 50 per cent of your previous year’s taxes including any adjustment for supplementary taxes. If an account did not exist in the previous year, the interim tax bill will reflect approximately 50 per cent of the full year’s tax.
For residential properties, you can pay your interim tax bill amount in three instalments on or before the dates indicated on the bill.
For non-residential properties, you can pay your interim tax bill amount on or before the due date indicated on the bill.
Final tax bills
Final property tax bills are issued in early June and reflect balance of taxes owed by you including the changes in municipal taxes and the education portion of your taxes if any.
For residential properties, you can pay your final tax bill amount in three instalments on or before the date indicated on the bill.
For non-residential properties, you can pay your final tax bill amount on or before the due date indicated on the bill.
The final instalment due dates are approved by Council.
Payment due dates
The due date to pay your property taxes is shown on your tax bill. Any arrears on your bill must be paid immediately. The City does not offer any discounts if you pay your tax in advance.
If you have not received your tax bill, please call 311 (905-615-4311 outside City limits) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failure to receive your tax bill does not exempt you from paying taxes and penalties for late payment.
Late payment charges
If you pay your property tax after the due date indicated on your tax bills, you will receive a late payment charge of 1.25%. This charge will be added on any unpaid amount from the first day after the instalment is due and on the first day of each month until the amount is paid in full.
Penalty and interest rates are in accordance with City by-laws and cannot be waived or changed.
If a payment is not cleared by your financial institution, you will receive a service charge that will be added to your account as per the General Fees and Charges By-law.
You can avoid late payment charges by making sure your property tax payment is received by our tax office on or before the due date.
