As the due date for the second installment of the 2021 Interim Tax Bill approaches, the City of Owen Sound would like to remind ratepayers about the available payment options.

Due to the Provincial lockdown and stay-at-home order currently in place until May 19, City Hall remains closed to the public. However, there are several convenient options available to make payments, including:

Drop Box: Cheques may be dropped in the afterhours drop box located at the front door of City Hall - please include the detachable portion of your bill if possible. We recommend that you place your cheque in a sealed envelope with tax dept written on it. Please do not place cash in the drop box.

Internet/telephone banking: Most financial institutions offer the "City of Owen Sound" or "Owen Sound City" as a payee. Be sure to pick "Taxes" to ensure that your payment is applied to the correct account.

At your bank or trust company: Pay at the teller or through an ATM. You are responsible to pay any service charges levied by them. Please take the entire bill with you.

Credit card: Payments may be completed through Paymentus. This secure, third-party online payment provider accepts Visa, Mastercard and American Express for a convenience fee. Paymentus credit card payments can also be completed by calling 1-888-253-8916.

Mail: You may mail your cheque to City Hall - Please include the detachable portion of the bill.

 Pre-authorized payment (PAD) plan: Payments are automatically deducted from your bank account on the due date of each bill.

 Payment must be received at City Hall by the due date to avoid penalty. A late payment charge of 1.25% is calculated on the amount outstanding and will be added to the property tax account on the first of each month.

 Final Tax Bills, which will include the June 30 and September 30 installments, will be mailed to residents in early June.
