In Toronto, the city gives you the option to directly pay them and to spread your property tax bill over 12 monthly payments, instead of only when they are due.jacksorbetta wrote: ↑No, it's terribly low. But on the flip side, I'd rather not do a financing situation with the city directly. I live on a pretty strict budget (remember I have cancer, and only just returned to work last month off being off for 3/4 of a year). I need the discipline of regular contributions or I'd be scrambling to pay my full tax bill.
And even if you don't take this option, the regular payment system is spread over 6 payments. First 3 payments are done over 3 months in first half of the year, based on previousu years taxes. Second 3 payments are done in last half of the year, based on actual property taxes for that year.
They don't even give the option to just pay once per year (or if they do it's some non-advertised way).
