Property Tax & Assessment
Property taxes are collected by the City of Vaughan for services provided by the City, York Region and local school boards.
In fact, the property tax bills you receive may come in a City envelope, but less than 30 per cent of property taxes are used by the City of Vaughan. Learn about where your property tax dollars go and what they are used for.
The City of Vaughan sends out two regular tax bills a year: interim and final. Contact the City immediately if a tax bill has not been received. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt property owners from paying taxes and any penalties incurred for late payment.
If the property is brand new and/or purchased from a builder, there may be a supplementary tax bill issued. The interim and final bill reflects the property taxes charged for the vacant land and the supplementary reflects the taxes for the actual building.
The 2023 Interim tax bill for ALL property owners will be mailed out in February 2023.
*** NEW for our 2023 MONTHLY Pre-Authorized Payment Plan Clients ***
The City's Monthly Pre-Authorized Payment program for 2023 will be ten (10) instalments starting in March 2023. There will be five (5) instalments from March 1 through to July 1 for the Interim bill. The 2023 Final tax bill will be mailed In June with five (5) instalments from Aug.1 through to Dec.1.
There will be no withdrawals in January and February 2023. A ten month program offers a more stable and equalized payment plan which is also more predictable and easier to budget for.
The bill continues to display a Watermark indicating "DO NOT PAY" - this confirms that payment for each instalment will be automatically withdrawn directly from your bank account on each of the dates listed on the bill. For more information, read the frequently asked questions (FAQs).
