The City encourages property owners to join the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan for a convenient, worry-free and secure way to pay property taxes.
For 2021 property tax bills, City Council waived late fees until September 30, 2021. Late fees continued to be charged on accounts with outstanding charges from 2020 and before. Please note that all 2021 property tax payments received on or after October 1 will incur an interest charge of 1.25% per month (calculated on the first day of each month).
Service Barrie is open for regular in-person services, and no appointments are needed to pay property taxes in person. In-person services are available 8:30am–4:30 pm, Monday–Friday (excluding holidays). Face masks are required; please review safety precautions at City Hall. For resident convenience and to skip the line, appointments can be made in advance by calling 705-726-4242.
