Tax Payment Options
PROPERTY TAX PAYMENT OPTIONS
Property owners in the Town of Petrolia have the following payment options available to them for paying their property taxes:
- Pre-Authorized Payments can easily be arranged by simply filling out a form and attaching a void cheque. We then automatically deduct your taxes from your financial institution either monthly or on each of the four installment due dates. This payment method ensures that your taxes are paid on time, thus avoiding any penalty or interest charges. This method is the same as providing us with post-dated cheques without having to write a cheque each time and bring it/mail it in. There is NO COST to set up this arrangement. Automatic-Withdrawal-Tax-Payment-Registration
- Electronic Funds Transfer via the internet or telephone banking. Your account number is your 19 digit property tax roll number located in the top left of your property tax bill.
- By mail to: Town of Petrolia, 411 Greenfield Street, PO Box 1270, Petrolia, ON, N0N 1R0. Please note that payments must be received by the town on or before the due date or penalty and interest will be applied to the outstanding balance.
- In person at the Municipal Office at 411 Greenfield Street 8:30am – 4:30pm Monday to Friday. CASH, CHEQUE, or DEBIT only.
Please note: If paying your tax bill through telephone or Internet banking or an automatic teller, please pay before the due date to allow enough time for your financial institution to transfer the funds to the Town by the due date. Some financial institutions may take up to 72 hours to process your payment.
Interest & Penalty
A penalty of 1.25% for the entire month will be applied on the first day taxes are past due and every month thereafter in which default continues in the current tax year.
Interest will be added commencing January 1, of the current tax year at the rate of 1.25% per month on the first of every month. Payments are applied to the oldest outstanding amount until the account is current.
The Tax Department has no authority to waive or alter a penalty and/or interest for any reason.
In accordance with the Municipal Act, 2001, any tax account payments will be applied first against late payment charges owing, starting with the oldest charges; and then payments will be applied against the taxes owing. In other words, all penalty and interest charges have to be paid first before payments are applied to taxes owing.
