Payments received are applied to the oldest outstanding balance first.
There are six different ways to pay your Toronto property taxes:
- Through your bank or financial institution
- By mail
- Pre-Authorized Tax Payment Program
- Enquiry/Cashier counters
- Mortgage company
- Payment drop boxes
You can pay your property tax bill at most banks or financial institutions through Internet banking, telephone banking, at an automatic teller or in person.
If paying your tax bill through telephone or Internet banking or an automatic teller, please pay before the due date to allow enough time for your financial institution to transfer the funds to the City by the due date. Retain your receipt.
To register for Internet or telephone banking:
- You will need your 21 digit assessment roll number from your tax bill
- Sign on to your financial institution’s secure website
- Select “City of Toronto” or “Toronto” as a payee
- Select “taxes” or “property taxes”
- Enter your assessment roll number
- If you require assistance, please contact your financial institution.
Please make cheques payable to the Treasurer, City of Toronto.
Post-dated cheques are accepted for the due dates.
Mail your payment to:
Payable to: Treasurer, City of Toronto
Mailed to: Box 5000
Toronto ON M2N 5V1
Please note that payments must reach the City by the due date to avoid penalty and interest charges and fees.
Note: Please do not send cash by mail.
You can enrol in one of our three payment plans for your property tax bill at any time.
Your tax payments will be automatically withdrawn from your financial institution account on the withdrawal dates.
