Revised due dates for City of Toronto property tax and utility bills
  
The 60-day grace period for property tax, utility bill payments and late penalties extended by the City during the COVID-19 response ends on May 15. There are important changes to instalment amounts and due dates for customers on all payment schedules. All customers will receive a mailed notification of their revised interim bill due dates. Final tax bills will be mailed in mid-May as usual.

Property taxes for the remainder of 2020 will be due on the following dates:
• Two-instalment plan: August 4
• Six-instalment plan: June 1, July 2, August 4, September 1 and October 1
• Eleven-instalment plan: June 15, July 15, August 17, September 15, October 15, November 16 and December 15.

Customers on the 11-instalment plan will have their original May and June interim instalment amounts combined with the final billing and spread evenly over July through December payments.

Customers who are already enrolled in the City’s pre-authorized payment plan don’t have to re-enroll – payments will start again automatically on the new due date. Customers who have sent the City post-dated cheques do not need to re-send cheques for the revised due dates, as any cheques previously submitted will be processed on the new due dates. Any cheques received after April 1, 2020 will be cashed according to the date on the cheque.

Those who pay their taxes via their mortgage payment should contact their mortgage company or financial institution to understand how this grace period will affect their mortgage amount and/or mortgage payment schedule.

Customers who paid their property tax and utility bills during this time will see any payments made reflected on their account. Property owners can access their property tax account details by using the online Property Tax Lookup tool available at https://www.toronto.ca/services-payments/property-taxes-utilities/property-tax/.

For utility bill customers, due dates appearing on utility bills have been automatically adjusted to reflect the 60-day grace period.

Early in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayor John Tory's Economic Support and Recovery Task Force announced tax relief measures, including a 60-day grace period for property tax and utility bills. From March 16 to May 15, payment due dates were extended, and late payment penalties suspended for all property tax and utility billings.
