First tax instalment of the year due soon for Oakville residents


Published February 16, 2021 at 4:08 pm

The first tax instalment of the year is due on February 25, 2021, for Oakville residents.

Residents are reminded that payment must be received on or prior to the due date to avoid penalty and interest, charged at 1.25 per cent monthly (15.00% annually), applied on the first day of each month of default.

Late payment charges cannot be waived and are set in accordance with current legislation.

Additionally, Oakville residents are reminded that filing an assessment appeal, a request for reconsideration or failure to receive a property tax bill does not exempt them from paying taxes by the due date or from incurring late payment penalties.

Cash payments will no longer be accepted.

Payments can be made online. Residents will need their property tax account number (not roll number), which can be found at the top right of the tax bill.

Additionally, residents may call ServiceOakville (905) 845-6601 to retrieve their property tax account number.

Then, residents will be required to sign in to their financial institution’s secure website, go to the “Pay Bill” icon or tab, add the Town of Oakville as a payee and enter the property tax account number and amount to be paid.

Mail cheques payable to the Town of Oakville should be sent to:

Town of Oakville, Tax Department
1225 Trafalgar Road
Oakville, ON
L6H 0H3

Cheques may also be dropped off at the dropbox outside the main entrance to Town Hall and can be delivered in the after-hours drop box at Town Hall. Please use the corresponding payment due date only.

To pay taxes using an existing MasterCard, Visa or American Express, visit the Plastiq website.

Residents are reminded that there is a fee to use this service for tax payments, which is independent of the Town of Oakville.
