Property taxes are due by Sept. 28
The deadline for the third instalment of the City of Vaughan’s 2023 final property taxes is Thursday, Sept. 28. Do you know all the different payment options available to you?
As a reminder, all City facilities are cashless. Here is how you can pay your property tax bills:
Pre-authorized payment plans, including a six-instalment and a 10-instalment option.
Post-dated cheques, made payable to the City of Vaughan that correspond with the amounts and due dates printed on the payment stubs.
Financial institutions, either in person, through the bank machine, online or via telephone.
At City Hall, placed in drop-off boxes at each entrance.
By mail, with a cheque payable to the City of Vaughan and sent in the return envelope enclosed with the payment stub.
Learn more about the above payment options at vaughan.ca/PropertyTax.
Didn’t receive your bill? If you did not receive your final tax bill in the mail, contact the City immediately at 905-832-2281 or email@example.com. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying property taxes – late payment penalties will be added.
