The City encourages property owners to join the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan for a convenient, worry-free and secure way to pay property taxes. Or, to avoid lineups at Service Barrie, use one of the alternative payment options.
Payment can be paid in person at
Service Barrie (1st floor of City Hall, 70 Collier Street) during regular business hours, Monday–Friday 8:30am–4:30pm. During the COVID pandemic appointments may be required; please visit barrie.ca/contact to confirm current status of City Hall.
Take advantage of other options for payment to avoid waiting in line:
Due to COVID-19 emergency measures, final 2020 property tax bills were completed and mailed by July 3, 2020, with installment due dates of August 31 and October 30. Since the tax bills were mailed later last year, accounts on a monthly pre-authorized payment (PAP) plan did not have a June payment.
For 2020, if you were on a monthly PAP plan one sixth of the final billing amount was withdrawn on the last business day of each month from July to December 2020 inclusive. The payments were stretched over six months (instead of the usual five) to help provide some relief to taxpayers.
The PAP Plan authorizes the City to automatically withdraw funds from the bank account you designate to make tax payments. There is no surcharge for this method of payment.
Withdrawals are made on the due dates indicated on the interim and final tax bills.
YES - Enrolment is permitted throughout the year. If your cheque and complete PAP Plan Application are received by the 15th of the month, your withdrawal can begin at the end of that month.
If you sell your property, please complete a PAP Change/Cancellation Form and notify Service Barrie in writing as soon as possible, stating the closing date of the sale. You must immediately pay the outstanding balance in full to avoid interest charges. Service Barrie can be notified by:
We will ensure that deductions stop at the appropriate time. We require at least fifteen days' notification to make the necessary adjustments.
If you change bank accounts, please complete a PAP Change/Cancellation Form and notify Service Barrie in writing as soon as possible along with a cheque from the new account marked “VOID”. Service Barrie can be notified by:
at least fifteen days' notification to make the necessary adjustments.
Subscribers to the PAP plan who have two missed payments will be removed from the plan. The balance of the taxes will become due on the regular due dates and subject to penalties and interest at a rate of 1.25% on the first day of each month payment is delayed. If any of your pre-authorized payments do not clear through your financial institution, the City will apply an administrative fee and penalty/interest.
Yes! The City’s bank handles all of the payment transactions. Access to your bank account is limited solely to the withdrawal of the tax payment funds as authorized. Account information of balances and other transactions is not available to the City.
