For example, a penalty of $30 is added to a balance of $1,000. On December 1st a 10% penalty is added on any unpaid balance. Then another 10% penalty is added on February 1st on any unpaid balance.

Non-receipt of your property tax bill does not exempt you from penalty due to late payment.

Property Tax Payment Information

Terms and Conditions
  • Cheques not honoured by your financial institution will be subject to applicable charges.
  • A Canada Post postmark will be honoured as payment date. If the postmark is absent or illegible, the date received at the County of St. Paul office will be considered the payment date.
 

Methods of Payment

Payments can be made at most chartered banks, trust companies, credit unions, and ATB Financials. 
 
Via Internet and Telepayment:
Please be aware of your bank's policies regarding the effective date of payment. It is very important to confirm your current property roll number is the one registered on your bill payment menu. The tax roll number is linked to the property, if you have moved; the new roll number must be referenced on your bill menu.
Also note that an individual payment is required for each tax roll number. 
 
Via your mortgage company:
If you pay PIT (principle, interest, and taxes) to a mortgage company, the company gets an invoice for your taxes and you receive the original tax bill for your records. The name of the company being invoiced appears on the bill. If you believe you are paying PIT but the mortgage company name does not appear on the bill, contact your mortgage company immediately.
If a mortgage company is named on your bill but is no longer responsible for your tax payment, you are responsible for paying the taxes on or before the due date to avoid penalty.
