The City of Toronto has issued its 2020 interim property tax bills – the first of two tax bills mailed annually. The 2020 final tax bill will be mailed in May.
Payment due dates for the interim tax bills under the three-instalment plan are March 2, April 1 and May 1.
For property owners enrolled in the Pre-Authorized Tax Payment (PTP) program, the 2020 interim tax due dates are:
- Two-instalment plan: March 2
- Six-instalment plan: March 2, April 1, May 1
- Eleven-instalment plan: February 18, March 16, April 15, May 15, June 15
Payments can be made through banks or financial institutions, by cheque or in person at the City’s inquiry and payment counters. Locations and hours of operation are available at https://www.toronto.ca/services-payments/property-taxes-utilities/counter-locations/. Property owners should pay early to ensure payment reaches the City’s office before the due date.
Residents who have recently purchased a property and pay their property taxes through pre-authorized payments or their banking or financial institution are reminded to update their account information with the City or with their financial institution to avoid incurring fees from misdirected payments. Property owners can sign up with Canada Post epost to receive a digital property tax bill. Visit https://www.canadapost.ca/cpc/en/personal/receiving/manage-mail/epost.page for details.
