Municipal Property Tax Billing & Installment Due Date Notice

Your property taxes are billed by the City of Barrie twice per year. The Interim billing in January and the Final billing in June, with two payment installments due for each billing.

Notice re Final Property Tax Bills  

Due to COVID-19 emergency measures, final property tax bills were completed and mailed between June 23 and July 3, 2020, with installment due dates of August 31 and October 30. 

Since the tax bills were mailed later this year, accounts on a monthly pre-authorized payment (PAP) plan did not have a June payment. For 2020, if you are on a monthly PAP plan one sixth of the final billing amount will be withdrawn on the last business day of each month from July to December 2020 inclusive.

Visit for the current status of City services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All final tax bills are being mailed between June 23 and July 3, 2020, with installments due on August 31 and October 30, 2020. All payments must be received by the City by the due date to avoid late payment charges of 1.25% per month which are calculated starting on the first day of each month payment is delayed.

Your taxes are calculated based on the assessment value of your property which is determined by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). If you have any concerns about your assessed value or classification, please refer to the Municipal Property Assessment Corporations website at:

The Municipal Act requires that your Interim bill is based on 50% of your prior year taxes and also adjusted to any supplementary taxes or cancellations completed.  The Final billing issued in June is calculated using your assessed value and the Council approved tax rates for the current year, less the Interim billing amount. 

If Tax Arrears appears on your tax bill it means that at the time of tax billing, there was an outstanding balance on your account.
