The property tax rates on this site are provided as a convenience to ratepayers and the Town does not guarantee the accuracy of this information. Properties in the commercial, industrial and multi-residential property classes may be subject to capping adjustments.
Due Dates for Property Taxes
The interim tax bills will be mailed at the beginning of March and will be payable in two installments:
- last week of March
- last week of May
Final tax bills will be mailed at the beginning of September and will be payable in two installments:
- last week of September
- last week of November
Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the taxpayer from payment of taxes nor from liability of penalty for late payment. The Municipality is not responsible for taxpayers paying taxes on wrong properties. If a tax bill for the wrong property is received, return it to the Municipal Office immediately. If the property has been sold, give the bill to the new owner. If a mortgage company makes payments on your behalf forward the tax bill to them. You are responsible for payment of property tax if the mortgage company shown on the bill no longer applies. Contact the Town of Minto if there is a change in mortgage information.
Penalty & Interest
To avoid penalty and interest charges payment must be received in our office on or before the due date.
A penalty for late payment of 1.25% per month is added the 1st day of each month. Taxes in arrears after December 31st will be subject to monthly interest charges until paid. Payments on accounts are applied first toward all outstanding interest and penalty, then to the oldest outstanding taxes. There is no authority to waive penalty and interest charges.
The Town of Minto charges the following fees:
- Arrears Notice Fee - $5.00
- NSF/Returned Payments - $40.00
- Tax Certificates - $40.00
- Zoning Compliance Letter - $50.00
What if there is a change in ownership or mailing address?
If the property has changed ownership, send the tax bill to the new owner or return to the Tax Office, indicating to whom the transfer of title has been made. To prevent misdirected tax bills, please advise the Tax Office in writing of mailing address changes. Failure to receive a tax bill could still result in penalty and interest charges of 1.25% per month applied to unpaid accounts.
Please send address changes to the Town of Minto 5941 Hwy 89, RR 1, Harriston ON N0G 1Z0 or by fax to 519 338-2005. Please quote the property address and roll number on all correspondence.
