Explore the different payment options available to pay your property taxes through the Town of Innisfil.

Pre-authorized payments

You'll never have to worry about missing a property tax payment when you set up a pre-authorized payment plan. Please complete the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan Registration form to sign up. Make sure to attach a void cheque or form from your financial institution.

You can enroll at any point throughout the year. If we receive your cheque and application form by the 15th of the month, your withdrawals can begin at the end of the month.

Plan options

There are three different options you can choose from.

Monthly payment plan

If you select this option, five equal payments from January to May (interim bill) and 5 equal payments from June to October (final bill) withdrawn on the last banking day of the month.

Your property can't be in arrears to set up this payment plan.

Due date payments

If you select this option, you will pay the amounts indicated on the interim and final tax bill on the payment dates indicated on the bills. Your property can't be in arrears to set up this payment plan.

Arrears payments

If your property taxes are not paid, the property may go into arrears. You can set up a pre-authorized payment plan to pay off the arrears. Please contact us and we will work with you to define a payment amount. That amount will be withdrawn on the final business day of each month until the arrears are paid in full.

You will continue to receive property tax bills.

Additions to tax rolls

Any additions to your tax account will automatically be withdrawn along with your next scheduled withdrawal amount. Additions to tax rolls include items such as unpaid utility arrear transfers, septic re-inspection fees, and returned payments. If you don’t want them debited along with your withdrawal, please contact Financial Services before the withdrawal date to make alternative plans.

Changes to your account

If you make any changes to ownership information on your account, the payment plan will automatically be terminated. Please contact us and we can update your payment plan information. We need at least 15 days to make updates.


To cancel your pre-authorized payment plan, please complete the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan Cancellation form at least 15 days before your next pre-authorized payment date. You can also print and fill out the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan Cancellation PDF form.

Frequently asked questions

Check out some frequently asked questions.

What if I miss a payment?

If the transfer is refused by the bank due to insufficient funds, we will apply the Not Sufficient Charge (NSF) charge to your tax account in addition to any applicable bank charges. If this happens a second time, you will be removed from the plan and all outstanding amounts will become due immediately.

What if I sell my property?

Please contact us, in writing, as soon as possible, stating the closing date. We will ensure that withdrawals stop at the appropriate time. We require at least 15 business days. Please also fill out and submit a Pre-Authorized Payment Plan Cancellation form.

What are the benefits?

Here are some benefits of setting up a pre-authorized payment plan:

  • You don't need to worry about missed due dates
  • A monthly plan allows you to budget easier
  • In the event of a postal disruption, illness or vacation, your payment will still be made
  • It costs less because you don't need to pay for postage or administrative costs

Online payments

You can pay your property taxes online using your credit card through the Town's third-party provider Plastiq. You'll need to create an account before you can make a payment. You will be charged a convenience fee. American Express (Amex), Discover, Mastercard and Visa are accepted payment options.  

Pay online with Plastiq

Please make online payments at least five business days in advance of the payment due date to provide time for processing.

Other payment options

Check out the following additional payment options.

Online or telephone banking

You can pay your property taxes directly through your bank using online or telephone banking. Please select “Innisfil” as the payee. You'll need to enter the 19-digit roll number found on your property tax bill as your account number.

Please allow 2-3 additional business days to ensure your payment reaches the Town by the due date.

In person

To pay in person, visit Town Hall located at 2101 Innisfil Beach Rd. Town Hall is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can pay by cash, cheque or debit.

If you're arriving outside of regular office hours, you can use the drop box located outside the front entrance of Town Hall. Please pay by cheque and write the 19-digit account number on the back of the cheque. Don't place cash in the drop box.

Pay through your mortgage

Talk with your mortgage provider to find out how to pay your property taxes through your mortgage.

Late payments

If we do not receive your property tax payment by the established due date, a late payment penalty of 1.25% per month will be charged on the remaining amount of unpaid taxes on the first business day every month, until the tax arrears have been paid. Payments are applied to all penalty and interest first and then to the oldest tax amount outstanding.

Once imposed, penalty and interest amounts are considered part of your taxes and can only be written off or adjusted in circumstances directly outlined in the Municipal Act. Municipalities, including Municipal Councils, have no authority to make arbitrary or discretionary adjustments to penalty and interest imposed under a municipal by-law.
