Property Tax Assistance Program

On April 8, Hamilton City Council approved the implementation of a temporary Property Tax Assistance Program to help ease the financial impacts on Hamilton taxpayers due to COVID-19. While 2020 property tax instalment due dates remain unchanged, the City is offering some flexibility on penalties and interest for those who are not able to pay by the April and June due dates. Learn more about the program

You can use the Property Tax Calculator to find out how much you are paying in taxes for specific City services. You can either enter your address and tax roll number or enter the assessment amount from MPAC to use the calculator.

The Tax Calculator shows an example of how your tax dollars are allocated amongst City services. Refer to your property tax bill for actual amounts. 

Note that “the property taxation system in Ontario is not intended to be a fee for specific services, the revenues are intended to go directly towards funding services of general benefit to the community.”
