Pay Your Taxes

Your property tax installments are due the first Thursday of March, May, July and September, as noted on your property tax bills. Make sure you make your payment in advance of the due date so that you don't receive late charges. If you believe that your tax bill isn't correct, you can appeal your tax bill.

To pay your taxes, you'll need:

  • The 19-digit property tax “roll number" located on your tax bill
  • The balance owing on your tax bill
  • Your payment method

Payment options

For your convenience, we offer a variety of different payment options. Choose the one that is most convenient for you.

Pre-authorized payment plan

If you want to save time, spread out your payments and avoid late payment charges, then the pre-authorized payment plan is right for you.

Complete the pre-authorized payment plan application form and email it to our Finance division, or drop it off or mail it to the Town of Caledon. Enrollment is automatically renewed annually.

Select a plan

We have two different pre-authorized payment plans available. If your scheduled withdrawal date is a weekend or statutory holiday it will be made on the next business day.

10-month plan

If you select the 10-month plan, 10 monthly payments will be withdrawn directly from your bank account on either the first or fifteen of the month from January to October.

Your monthly payments beginning January to receipt of your final tax bill are based on prior year's taxes divided by 10. Your final tax bill outlines your monthly payment for the remaining months of the plan. It is based on your current year's taxes, minus your payments made up to the date of your final tax bill divided by the number of remaining months. Your final tax bill outlines your monthly payments for the following year.

4-month installment plan

If you select the 4-month installment plan, 4 payments will be withdrawn directly from your bank account on the regular tax due dates listed on your interim and final tax bills.

Eligibility

  • You have no outstanding taxes owing
  • You do not pay your taxes through your mortgage
  • Your last assessment was a full assessment

Plan cancellation or changes

Email our Finance division, drop off or mail a letter to the Town of Caledon at least 30 days before your next payment is due to cancel or to change your banking information.

Online, telephone or in-person banking

For online and telephone banking payments: set up “Caledon taxes” as a payee using your 19-digit tax “roll number” located on your tax bill as your account number. Make payment on or before the due date.

For in-person banking: visit your branch with your tax bill to make payment at the counter on or before the due date.

Credit card online

We only accept credit card tax payments online through Plastiq, an online third-party payment service provider. A service fee is charged by Plastiq calculated as a set percentage of each transaction to cover payment handling and processing charges.

Create a Plastiq account online and make your tax payment at least six business days before the due date using your credit card. Please review Plastiq's terms and conditions prior to using the service.
