Property Tax Due Dates and Penalties



The Town of Grimsby has mailed the second 2022 Interim Tax Bills to all tax payers who are included on the Assessment Roll. The Assessment Roll is a public document that can be viewed at Town Hall during regular business hours.

If you have not received your tax bill, please contact the tax office at 905-945-9634.  Failure to receive a bill does not excuse the payment of taxes. 

Tax payers have the following payment options available to them:

  • Payments can be made at most financial institutions or by telephone and internet banking. Payments made through your financial institution can take up to 3-5 days to reach us, which may result in payments not being received until after the due date.
  • Installments can also be paid by postdated cheques provided the taxes are paid by the regular due dates. 
    • A nightly depository is available at the front entrance of Town Hall for cheque payments only. Anything received after 4:30pm will be processed and considered received on the following business day. 
  • No credit card payments are accepted at Town Hall. Please visit the Town website for further details on credit card payments.

Please ensure that your payment reaches us on or before the due date. The taxpayer is responsible for the late arrival of payment. Penalties of 1.25% are added on the fourth business day of default and on the first day of each month following. Penalties cannot be waived.

Tax bill not received

All property owners in Grimsby must pay their property taxes. Failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt you from paying your taxes.

Penalties for late payment 

Tax arrears are subject to late payment charges.  Late payment charges are imposed on the unpaid levies the fourth business day following the tax instalment due date (i.e. Due Friday with penalties applied Thursday morning).  In addition, as long as the property taxes remain unpaid, interest will be added on the first business day each month thereafter. Penalty and interest charge rates are included within the Consolidated Fees and Charges By-Law and cannot be waived, except where a Town error has occurred.

Payments made at a bank

Payments made through your financial institution may take up to 5 days to reach our office which may result in payments not being received until after the due date and could result in late penalties.
