Property tax

2014 property tax bills mailed May 23, due June 30.

Onward/ The City offers a Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP) that allows property owners to pay their taxes on a monthly basis over the course of the year.

Billed to the property owner each May, property tax is calculated using your property's annual assessed value, as found on your assessment notice, and the property tax rate approved by Council.

Your property tax bill is due June 30. A seven per cent (7%) penalty is added July 1 and again on October 1 to any unpaid balance. This means, for every $2,000 in outstanding taxes, it would cost $140 in penalty. For payment options and important reminders see Property Tax Payment.

How do I get a copy of my property tax bill?

If you have not received your property tax bill by the first week of June, please call 3‑1‑1.

Non-receipt of your property tax bill does not exempt you from late payment penalties.

All charges on a tax account are the responsibility of the registered owner of the property. When you purchase a property, adjustments for taxes are made between the vendor and purchaser.

Property Tax Relief Program

The Property Tax Relief Program​ forgives all property taxes, excluding local improvement tax, for owners who lost the use of their property either permanently or for longer than 90 days after the June 2013 flood.

Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP)

The Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP) is a popular program that allows you to pay your property taxes on a monthly basis instead of one payment in June. By participating in TIPP you don't need to worry about the June due date or late payment penalties. Use one of our secure online forms to: request an application to join TIPP, changing banks or bank accounts or cancel TIPP.
