This page contains information about the different tax billing notices issued by the City of Barrie.
Note 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 For 2020, if you are on a monthly PAP plan one sixth of the final billing amount is being withdrawn on the last business day of each month from July to December 2020 inclusive.
For property owners who prefer in-person payments: please note that to avoid line-ups around the due date periods we recommend taking advantage of other payment options.
barrie.ca/services for the current status of City services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Property taxes are billed by the City of Barrie twice per year: the Interim billing in and the Final billing, with two payment installments due for each billing. If Tax Arrears appears on your tax bill it means that at the time of billing there will be an outstanding balance on the account.
All final tax bills were 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 (calculated starting on the first day of each month payment is delayed).
The City issues supplementary/omitted tax bills as per
Property Assessment Change Notices, which are issued by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) for the following reasons:
Property tax dollars associated with any changes are retroactive to the date of occupancy or purchase, or when the renovation or alterations were completed. Payment for supplementary/omitted tax bills is typically due in two installments. Service Barrie can assist in setting you up with a
payment plan to help minimize the impact.
Tax Arrears notices are issued to property owners when payment due to the City has not been paid. Interest/penalty is calculated at a rate of 1.25% per month on the first day of each month payment is delayed. The notice outlines tax amount due, interest/penalty amounts, and payment options. Interest/penalty fees cannot be waived. Properties that are two or more years in arrears are eligible to be registered for tax sale.
Please disregard the notice. Taxes will be updated and notices sent to the new owner once the ownership information has been received and updated.
Please contact Service Barrie at (705) 726-4242 or
ServiceBarrie@barrie.ca so a representative can review the account history for payment (the payment may have made around the time of arrears letters being generated and mailed). Please be prepared to supply proof of payment (ie cancelled cheque, online banking confirmation number) if requested.
It's possible that water arrears or accounts receivable charges were added to the tax roll. Please contact Service Barrie at (705) 726-4242 or ServiceBarrie@barrie.ca so a representative can review your account and provide you with full information.
Please contact your mortgage company to determine why payment was not made by the due date.
