Tax Billing Cycle & Payment Options

Tax Billing Cycles

Interim/final tax billings, installment due dates


Most property owners will receive two municipal tax bills from the Township each year.

Supplementary tax billings - new construction and property changes

Supplementary and omitted tax bills are sent out as a result of a change in your property during the taxation year. These changes can include, but are not limited to: new residential homes, new commercial, residential or multi-residential units, changes in tax classes, additions or renovations to buildings and previously exempt properties that become taxable.

These bills follow the Property Assessment Change Notice issued by MPAC. MPAC is responsible for assessing the properties and forwarding the information to the Township for billing. Sometimes these bills can span more than one year depending on when an MPAC assessor is able to visit your property.

Supplementary and omitted tax bills are usually issued twice per year (early fall and late fall) and are in addition to any other tax bills that may have been issued.  Each bill includes the effective date and change reason.  They are due in two instalments and notice is provided at least 21 days before the payment is due. Please contact MPAC (phone: 1-866-296-6722) for questions regarding the assessment amount used to calculate a supplementary bill or the number of days indicated on the bill.

Tax Payment Options


Preauthorized payment plan:

Preauthorized payments are automatically debited from your bank account, which ensures your property taxes are always paid on time.  Two plans to choose from:

 

  1. Through monthly pre-authorized tax payments: 
Use the Preauthorized Tax Payment Application to have your property taxes automatically debited from your bank account in 10 instalments (on the first business day of each month, January through October): 2. Through a regular installment program:

Use the Pre-authorized Tax Payment Application to have your property taxes automatically debited from your bank account on the four installment due dates outlined above (February and April for the interim bill, June and September for the final bill).

Property owners who have registered for one of the preauthorized payment plans will note the following sticker on their tax bills:



Through your bank:
Use your bank's online or telephone banking service, or pay at the teller or ABM.   Select bill payee (Loyalist taxes) and input your 19 digit roll number for the account number (omit any spaces, dots, or dashes). Payment can be made at most financial institutions on or before the due date. Financial institutions may charge for this service.

Please be aware of your bank's processing times to ensure your payment is received on the due date.  


Through your mortgage company:

Mortgage payment sticker

The above-illustrated sticker means that at the time we printed your bill, we had a mortgage company on file for your property. If a lender is no longer responsible for remitting taxes on your behalf please let us know, or if you have switched mortgage companies from the one listed on your tax bill please let us know.

The Township is not responsible for facilitating communication between the lender and the property owner. This is solely an arrangement between the lender and the property owner when it comes to the remittance of property taxes. It is the property owner's responsibility to ensure property taxes are paid.
