For those property owners not on the monthly Pre-authorized Payment Plan for property taxes, your 2019 Interim Tax notice was mailed last Friday February 1st 2019.  

Instalment due dates are February 28th and May 31st.

We accept cash, cheque, or debit at the office during business hours Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm (excluding statutory holidays). We are also set up with most major banks to accept payments using internet or telephone banking. You must use your Property Roll # indicated on your tax bill to register.

To setup your property taxes as a bill payment through your online banking, go to “add a bill”, search for “East Zorra-Tavistock” and select.  Enter the Roll Number from your tax bill as your account number. Use your 15-digit roll number, excluding the dashes. Example: If your roll number on your tax bill shows 010-010-00000-0000 then you would enter this as 01001000000. If an error occurs, please add the extra four zeros at the end and try again.

The Township offers a pre-authorized payment plan for the payment of property taxes. This is a free service and payment options include:

  • 4 instalments with payments withdrawn on the regular instalment due dates for the amounts indicated on your tax bill
  • 10 instalments with payments withdrawn from your account on the 15th day of the month from January to October. 
  • 12 instalments with payments being withdrawn from your account on the 15th day of the month January to December.

Please use this link to access the Township’s Pre-Authorized Payment Application form if you are interested in signing up for this service. 

If your taxes are paid by your mortgage company, your receipted tax bill will be mailed to you once the taxes have been paid.

If you have not received a bill, or you have questions about your taxes, please contact the office at 519-462-2697 or email taxes@ezt.ca.  Failure to receive a tax notice does not prevent penalty charges for late payment.
