Payment Options

The City of Peterborough offers many convenient payment options.

Pre-authorized Payment Plans (PAP)



There are currently two plans to choose from:

 

  1. Monthly – this plan debits your bank account on the City’s last working day of each month. Typically this plan is started in January and runs to December each year. However, you can start this plan at any time throughout the year provided that your property tax account is current at the time of application. The plan does require that the annual taxes be paid off by the end of December each year. If you wish to sign up for this plan, the Pre-Authorized Tax Payment Plan Authorization Form is available online.

  2. Dollar Sign on Green BackgroundInstalment – this plan debits your bank account on the actual due date of each instalment (only the regular due date – not set up for the fixed monthly income due date). This plan may be started at any time throughout the year provided that your property tax account is current at the time of application. The Pre-Authorized Tax Payment Plan Authorization Form is available online. 

The PAP forms may be dropped off at the Tax Office in person at 500 George Street North, mailed to: City of Peterborough, Tax Office, 500 George St N, Peterborough ON K9H 3R9 or faxed to our offices at 705-748-8839.

If you are already  enrolled in one of the City's preauthorized payment plans and need to change your banking information or cancel your plan, access the

cancellations must be received by the Tax Office by the 21st of the month in
