How to pay your property taxes

Sign up for a pre-authorized payment plan

Pre-authorized payments are a convenient way to pay property tax by setting up automatic monthly payments or scheduled payments on tax due dates four times a year.

Pay through your bank or financial institution

You can pay your property taxes at your bank or financial institution using online banking, telephone banking, at an automatic teller or in-person.

To pay online or by phone, use your tax roll number (19-digit number on your bill) and make your payment to Guelph Tax. Contact your bank to arrange payments in person, by phone or online if you have trouble finding the payee’s name.
