Property Tax Late Payment and Penalities Waived during COVID-19

The Town of Newmarket is looking for ways assist residents during COVID-19. While all options are being considered, currently the Town will waive all late payment fees and interest on all property tax accounts for the March 26 and April 28 installments.

If you can pay your property taxes on March 26 and April 28, please continue to do so. If you cannot make your payments, there will be no late payments or penalties added to your account. By waiving the penalties and interests, we are hoping to give residents, who are in need, more time to make their payments.

The Town is currently working on a Property Tax Relief Program and will provide you with an update as soon as possible.

Residents on Pre-Authorized Payment Plans during COVID-19. 

Currently, the Town is withdrawing PAP payments as scheduled. If you are currently on a pre-authorized payment plan (PAP) and need more time to pay for the April 28 tax payments, 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 must be $0. This applies to all Pre-Authorized Payment Plans (10-month - Plan B, Plan D, Plan E and Installment Plans).

Supplementary/Omitted Tax Billings

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