You can pay your property taxes in person or by ATM (Automated Teller Machine).

Please contact your bank prior to arriving at your bank or using an ATM:

  • You will often need to bring your original tax notice and stub when visiting your bank in person.
  • You will need to set up an ATM service through your bank first before you try to pay through an ATM. 

 Keep your ATM receipt as proof of your property tax payment date.Sometimes there is a delay when processing payments through ATM machines. (Contact your bank to check whether or not there is a delay when using their machines.)

Remember to claim your home owner grant

You must claim your home owner grant each year, even if you are paying through your mortgage or deferring your payment. 

 Some banks do not forward the remittance stub that contains your home owner grant application to us. If this is the case, claim your home owner grant.
