Unacceptable Methods of Payment
You cannot pay your property taxes using the following methods:
- Over-the-counter payment at banks
- Credit card
Keep your bills and receipts safe. You will have to pay a fee to get a duplicate tax bill or written receipt.
For income tax purposes, normally only the amount on the Ontario Tax Credit schedule is needed. You do not need to send a copy of your tax bill or a receipt unless you are specifically asked.
Penalty and/or interest are calculated on the overdue tax balance the first day of every month at a rate of 1.25% until paid. Payment must be received on or before the due date to avoid these charges. The County does not accept the postmark as proof of the date of receipt.
If you do not receive a tax bill, you are still responsible for paying it and you are still liable for the penalty for late payment. The County tax collector has no authority to waive or change penalty and/ or interest charges for any reason.
If you make a payment at the bank, there is no guarantee that the payment will be made on time.
