The Town would like to remind residents that the first instalment of the 2018 Interim Tax Billing is due on Thursday, February 22, 2018. This billing applies to all residential, farmland, pipeline and managed forest properties.

The interim tax bills were mailed to property owners the week of January 29, 2018. If you did not receive a tax bill and you are responsible for payment, please contact the Tax Division at 905.430.4304 or 905.668.5803 to obtain the necessary information.

Please note that payments not received by February 22, 2018, are subject to a penalty charge of 1.25 percent on the first day of default and the first day of each calendar month so long as non-payment continues.

Payment can be made in the following ways: 

  1. By pre-authorized payment plan: visit whitby.ca or call Town Hall at the numbers above for more information.
