As the province plans for recovery, the town is beginning to carefully and responsibly bring back services and reopen some public spaces, programs and services. Provincial emergency orders and the town’s physical distancing by-law remain in effect. We must all continue to follow guidelines from Public Health officials.
On May 25, 2020 Town Council approved to extend the 2020 final tax installment due dates to August 25 and October 26 for all property owners. Council has also approved waiving penalty and interest on all outstanding property tax for the remainder of the 2020 tax year, until the first working day in January 2021.
This means property tax payments for 2020 are due by the dates noted above, however, those who are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic have the ability to make payment within the 2020 tax year, without penalty. Any property taxes outstanding by January 1, 2021 will have penalty and interest applied, at a rate of 1.25 per cent per month as per Town By-law.
Final tax bills will be mailed the week of July 6.
Any properties that have experienced a change in assessment due to a property change, and have received notice from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) in 2020 regarding this change, may also receive a supplementary or omitted tax bill from the town, in addition to the final tax bill.
Property owners who opted out of the town’s pre-authorized payment plans (PAP) will be able to opt-in by filling out the reapplication form below and emailing the application to PAP@oakville.ca prior to the 15th of June. Applications will not be accepted after June 15, 2020 for the 2020 taxation year.
Taxes provide the main source of revenue to deliver services supplied by the town, the region and school boards located in Oakville. Payment dates for tax payments are set in accordance with legislation that requires the town to pay the Region of Halton and school boards a proportional share of the tax levy. Consequently, all tax payment options require that taxes are fully paid by September 30 annually.
