After municipal, school board and library mill rates are set in the spring, property owners will receive a property tax notice. Your tax notice may be paid by:
Annual lump sum
You can also pay in person at the Customer Service Main Floor, City Hall using cash, cheque or debit cards.
If you mail a cheque to pay your taxes, the City must receive your cheque ON or BEFORE June 29th , regardless of postdate. The City suggests that you mail your cheque EARLY but post-date it for June 29th.
TIPS - Tax Instalment Payment Service

Withdrawals are made on the 15th day of each month. Payments are adjusted in June, after the new mill rate is set. No penalties apply if payments are made according to the guidelines.
Print-off application form - Send in completed application form along with a void cheque.
If any payments are missed, the City may remove you from TIPS and request payment of the total outstanding taxes, plus penalties.
