Property Tax information during the COVID-19 Pandemic

New Financial Relief Program for 2021  

A new application-based Financial Relief Program will begin on February 1, 2021 for residents, elderly residents and small businesses. Those who need assistance can learn more about the program and how to apply at newmarket.ca/financialreliefprogram 

This Financial Relief Program ensures fairness and equity and is coordinated with the programs being offered by other levels of government. Residents and businesses that are able to continue to pay are strongly encouraged to do so. This will help the Town to continue to dedicate resources to those most financially challenged by COVID-19 and to continue providing essential services like fire and emergency, waste collection and safe drinking water.

In addition to the Financial Relief Program the Town has a number of plans in place to support the community as a whole and particularly the most vulnerable in the community through a variety of programs and partnerships. The business community is also being strongly supported through the creation of the Business Assistance Concierge (BAC) program (a virtual business support and resiliency centre) and an overall Economic Resiliency Action Plan.

For more information, call 905-895-5193 or email info@newmarket.ca

Pre-Authorized Payments during COVID-19 / Financial Relief Plan  

If you are currently on a pre-authorized payment plan (PAP) and need more time to pay, you will need to notify the Town in writing by emailing taxes@newmarket.ca. Doing so will stop all PAP withdrawals and cancel your participation from the PAP program. 

If you wish to return to any PAP plans in the future, you will need to re-apply and pay any remaining balance on your account. The account balance must be $0. This applies to all Pre-Authorized Payment Plans (10-month - Plan B, Plan D, Plan E and Installment Plans). 

Please note that withdrawals for 2021 begin in February with the last withdrawal in November.

The property tax dollars associated with the changes are retroactive to the date of occupancy / purchase, or when the renovation or alterations were completed.
