Pre-authorized payments

Save time and trees!

By signing up for our pre-authorized tax payment plan, you will show support for the environment - and enjoy the following benefits:

  • It’s paperless - making it a great example of green stewardship. You only need to write one voided cheque.
  • No transportation is required to make your tax payment, which serves to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • No waiting in line to make payments.
  • Monthly pre-authorized payments make budgeting easier because your taxes are paid in smaller monthly portions. Another pre-authorized option is to pay quarterly on due dates.
  • You don’t have to worry about missed due dates, lost cheques or postal delays.
  • You save on postage and envelopes.

What is a pre-authorized payment plan?

You make 12 monthly payments for your taxes. These are taken directly from your bank account on the first day of each month and credited to your property tax account.

How does it work?

The plan runs from January to December. The first six monthly payments are based on the previous year’s tax levy. The final six-monthly payments are adjusted to reflect the actual taxes for the year.

Payments may only be made by automatic withdrawal from a chequing account at a financial institution.

Written authorization is required before the withdrawals can begin. The City of Kitchener does not charge for this service, but normal bank charges may be applicable.

Any supplementary tax bills you receive must be paid separately from the tax pre-authorized payment plan by the specified date.
