If you have not received your tax bill by July 5 or have questions in regard to the amount of the bill, please call 311 (alternate: 519-255-2489) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tax payments are accepted through a variety of methods:

Property owners who are having trouble keeping up with their property tax payments are encouraged to seek lower cost financing alternatives, which are available through local financial institutions. Assistance through the City for property taxes is provided by way of the following programs:
- Tax Repayment Program: available to all property owners
- Tax Relief Program: available to single-family residential property owners that meet the eligibility criteria (application deadline: February 28, 2022)
If your property taxes are paid by a mortgage or financial institution, you will receive a tax bill for your records. No action otherwise is required.
Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt property owners from paying their taxes. Penalties and interest (which can add up to 15% of the taxes on an annual basis) will be added for late payments.
