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  • 4 instalments with payments withdrawn on the regular instalment due dates for the amounts indicated on your tax bill
  • 10 instalments with payments withdrawn from your account on the 15th day of the month from January to October. 
  • 12 instalments with payments being withdrawn from your account on the 15th day of the month January to December.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

Potential for Significant Flooding This Weekend

Widespread precipitation is forecast across southwestern Ontario, beginning Friday morning and continuing until late Saturday. Current forecasts call for a combined total over the two days between 60 - 90 mm of rain, with the bulk falling on Saturday.

Ground conditions are generally wet and/or frozen. With the lower forecast amounts, streams and rivers will be out of bank in some areas, and inundating low lying flood plains. Should the higher precipitation forecast materialize, more significant flooding could occur.

At this time, levels are expected to remain below those experienced in February 2018. Fortunately, there has yet to develop any significant snow pack this winter in the watershed, and any flooding will mostly be driven by rain received. The current estimate of water equivalent in the snow is about 10 mm.

Peaks should develop beginning early Sunday morning in upstream areas (Mitchell, Stratford, Tavistock, Ingersoll) and during the day and into the early evening Sunday in London. River flows will remain higher than normal for several days into next week, increasing the safety risk around rivers and streams throughout the watershed.

The public is encouraged to exercise extreme caution around all local waterways. Banks adjacent to rivers and creeks are very slippery and, when combined with cold, fast-moving water, pose a serious hazard. Parents are encouraged to keep their children and pets away from all watercourses.

The UTRCA’s flood control reservoirs at Fanshawe, Wildwood and Pittock Conservation Areas are at seasonal levels and will be operated to reduce downstream flooding. UTRCA officials are monitoring the situation, and will report on any changing conditions if necessary.

Don’t let your holidays go to waste

Choose products with less packaging to reduce the amount materials sent to the landfill


During the holidays, gift wrap and excess packaging can have a significant environmental impact. Residents can make a difference in making an effort to choose products with limited packaging while also choosing packaging and gift wrap options that can be recycled.

Follow these simple steps for quick and simple recycling this holiday season:

  • Remove all tape, plastic film, twist ties and other objects before recycling cardboard packaging.
  • Break down and flatten all cardboard boxes, with bundles no larger than 75 x 75 x 20 centimetres.
  • Wrapping paper can be recycled, with the exception of foil-based wrapping paper.
  • Remove all ribbons and bows. Save and reuse for next year where possible.

New this year, bulky Styrofoam from packaging can now be dropped off at the Oxford County Waste Management Facility and Woodstock Enviro Depot. Beginning January 4, 2020.
