- Pre-authorized payment plans for property tax and utility bills (direct withdrawal from customer’s bank account)

The City advises Toronto residents to be aware of possible fraudulent telephone calls stating that an online City tax, utility, or parking ticket payment has not gone through, and requesting that further payment be made through a website provided by the caller. The City of Toronto will never call you to advise that an online payment has not gone through, or ask you to make payment or provide any banking or account information over the telephone. Do not provide personal banking information to anyone over the telephone or web or make an online payment on any website that cannot be verified.

To report suspected telephone fraud, contact the Toronto Police Service at 416-808-2222, call the Canadian Anti-Fraud Call Centre (PhoneBusters) at 1-888-495-8501, or report online through www.recol.ca.
