Property owners can still make payments through their bank or financial institution using online banking or telephone banking, or by visiting a teller or ATM. Payments can also be made by enrolling in the pre-authorized tax payment (PTP) program, or by mailing a cheque. Payments submitted by mail need to reach the City before the due date, to avoid late fees and penalties. In-person counter services located at civic centres and City Hall are open; locations and hours of operation are available on the City’s website:
Property owners who are enrolled in the PTP program and who have recently moved are reminded to update their property account information with the City or with their financial institution, to avoid penalties and fees from payments being applied to the wrong account.
Property owners can access their property tax account by using the online Property Tax Lookup tool (www.toronto.ca/propertytax) or by speaking to a customer service representative at 311, available Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with extended hours of 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 29;Thursday, June 30 and Monday, July 4.
