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 

There is no grace period for late tax payments. Payment must be received on or prior to the due date to avoid penalty and interest. Interest is charged at 1.25 per cent monthly (15 per cent annually), applied on the first day of each month of default. Late payment penalties/interest cannot be waived by Council or staff. This policy is applied to all tax accounts to maintain fairness. Late payment charges are set in accordance with the Municipal Act, 2001. Payments on tax accounts are applied toward the outstanding penalty and interest first and then to the oldest outstanding taxes.

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. In such cases, late penalties will apply.
