Today, Mayor John Tory announced the launch of a new digital payment platform, MyToronto Pay, which offers online payment options for City of Toronto property tax and utility bills. With MyToronto Pay, property owners now have one more option to pay and manage property tax and utility (water and solid waste) bills in Toronto.
Mayor Tory also recently announced the launch of a new mobile app for 311 Toronto. These two new launches are a part of the City’s ongoing investment in service improvements to provide residents, businesses and visitors access to services where and how they wish to access them, which includes easier access across multiple channels and more self-serve options. As part of its service modernization, the City is committed to ensuring service equity, accessibility, privacy and security, and offering simple and modern digital options that also lead to greater operational effectiveness.
The new MyToronto Pay service provides convenience and flexibility to residents and businesses by providing secure, easy to use and accessible options for making payments, and offers many benefits including:
Payments can be made by Electronic Funds Transfer (no fee), Visa or American Express credit cards (fee of 2.35 per cent of the total payment amount) or by debit card (fee of 1.5 per cent of total payment amount).
The City partnered with PayIt, a leader in digital government service and payment services, to launch this digital payments service. The PayIt agreement gives the City an opportunity to enter into a cost-effective and competitive commercial relationship that allows the City to move forward with digitizing services. Working in partnership with PayIt, the City will continuously work to improve the experience and offer more features and payment-related services through 2022.
