Revenue generated from property taxes helps to pay for public education as well as city services and programs, some of which may include but are not limited to:

  • Police, Fire and Paramedic Services
  • Public transit
  • Parks, forestry and recreation

Interim Property Tax Bill

  • Calculated at 50 per cent of the previous year's total property tax
  • Interim Property Tax Bill is mailed out in January each year
  • Regular payment instalments are due the first business day of March, April and May
  • If property tax is paid through your mortgage company, the Interim Property Tax Bill will be sent directly to the mortgage company – you will only receive the Final Property Tax Bill

Final Property Tax Bill

  • Calculated using the property assessment value and multiplying it by the tax rate (Assessment x Rate = Total Property Tax)
  • The tax rate is comprised of two components — the municipal portion passed by City Council and the education rate set by the Province of Ontario
  • Property assessment value is assigned by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC)
  • Final Property Tax Bill is mailed out in May each year
  • Regular payment instalments are due the first business day of July, August and September

Supplementary/Omitted Tax Bill

Supplementary/Omitted tax bills are issued outside of the regular billing cycle, separate to the Interim and Final Property Tax Bills. Some important points about supplementary/omitted tax bills include:

  • May include assessment value for current year and previously omitted two years prior
  • Cannot be paid through the Pre-Authorized Tax Payment Program or through a mortgage company — you will need to pay this through another accepted payment method or forward this bill to your mortgage company for payment
  • Each supplementary/omitted tax bill will be payable in two tax instalments

City Building Fund (CBF)

The City Building Fund is a tax levy dedicated to priority transit and housing projects.

Property Tax Bill Reprint

You can request a reprint of your property tax bill by contacting a customer service representative. A fee for the reprint of a tax bill will be applied to your property tax account.

Business Reply Envelopes

A business reply envelope is included with the property tax and utility bill mailings for your convenience. If you do not require an envelope, contact a customer service representative to request that a business reply envelope no longer be included with future bills.

Beginning in 2021, the City will no longer send return payment envelopes with its property and utility bills, in order to support the City's Long Term Waste Management Strategy and TransformTO Climate Action Strategy
