The City issues two property tax bills per year including an interim and final property tax bill. Supplementary and/or omitted tax bills are sent after the final property tax bill is mailed.
There are three instalments for the interim bill and three instalments for the final bill.
Interim bills are mailed in January while final bills are mailed in May.
There are different methods to pay your property tax bill.
This program authorizes your financial institution to automatically withdraw your property tax payments from your bank or financial institution and forward them to the City on scheduled withdrawal dates.
Choose from one of three plans:
Interim bills for this program are mailed in January while final bills are mailed in May.
When property tax is paid on behalf of the owner through a financial institution or mortgage company the interim and final tax bill will be mailed directly.
Property owners will receive a copy of the final property tax bill for their records only.
If property owners receive a regular property tax bill or property tax account statement and their mortgage company or financial institution is scheduled to pay the property taxes that bill should be forwarded to the respective organization.
Property owners that subscribe to epost™ will receive their interim property tax bill in January and the final property tax bill in May.

If your property tax is paid by a financial institution or mortgage company, once we have updated their interest on your account, future bills will be sent to them.

If you have registered for payment through your mortgage, and received a bill, we have no record of your mortgage company on your account. Contact your bank/lender for instructions.
Property owners will receive a copy of the final property tax bill for their records.
