You can drop your payment off at Town Hall after hours using our drop boxes. The drop boxes are located at both the Mary St. and King St. entrances. If you’re dropping off a payment after hours, you must pay by cheque.

Financial institution

You can pay your tax bill at any banking or financial institution. Just show them the bill and make your payment.

Mortgage Company 

Make arrangements to pay your property taxes with your mortgage company.

Pay by credit card

You can pay your property taxes by credit card online using third party companies such as Plastiq or Paytm. Make sure to submit your payment well in advance of the due date, because it may take a few days to process the payment.

Credit card payments for property taxes cannot be processed in person. Any third party companies are neither affiliated nor partners of the Town. Visit their website for their terms and conditions, payment processing times or any other inquiries. 

Always leave enough time for your payment to process. You will be charged a late penalty if we receive your tax payment after the due date. 

Late payments

If you’re late paying your taxes, a penalty charge of 1.25% will be added on the first day of default. A further 1.25% interest charge will be applied the first day of each month until we receive the payment. Payments on accounts are applied first towards the outstanding interest and then to the oldest outstanding taxes.

Sale of property for non-payment of taxes

If property taxes remain unpaid for a specific period of time, the Town of Milton is authorized, under the Municipal Act, to sell vacant or improved land in any property class. You’ll receive a Tax Arrears Certificate, which indicates that your property will be sold if all taxes, penalties, interest and costs incurred are not paid within one year of the registration of the certificate.

Milton offers a pre-authorized tax payment program for accounts in arrears. For more information, or to get an Arrears Plan Application form, please send us an email or call us at 905-864-4142.
