Postal Disruption

During the current postal disruption at Canada Post, you are still responsible to ensure your property tax payments are received by the due date. Penalty and interest charges will apply for payments received or postmarked after the due date.

There are several convenient payment options available:

  • At most banks or financial institutions in person, at the automated teller machine (ATM), or through their internet or telephone banking. Retain your receipt.
    Note: Property roll numbers are assigned to the property, not the property owner. Please ensure that the bank and online banking information reflects your correct 11-digit roll number to avoid payments being applied to the incorrect property. You will be charged a fee to correct a misapplied payment.
     
  • By mail. Please make cheques payable to the City of Hamilton and mail your payment to:
    • City of Hamilton
      Corporate Services Department, Taxation Section
      71 Main St. West
      PO Box 2040 STN LCD 1
