Pre-authorized Tax Payment (PTP) Program Frequently Asked Questions

The following FAQs apply to those registered in the City of Vaughan’s Pre-authorized Tax Payment (PTP) program:


Interim property tax bills for those registered in the City’s PTP programs will be mailed in February 2024, and the Final tax bills will be mailed in June 2024.


The "DO NOT PAY" message confirms that payment for each instalment will be automatically withdrawn on each property tax payment due date. The property tax payment automatic withdrawal dates are listed on each bill. No further action from you is required to make a payment.


The City offers two pre-authorized payment options:

  1. A 10-month instalment program. There will be five monthly instalments for each billing: interim and final. The first five instalments are from March 1 through to July 1 (interim bill) and then Aug. 1 through to Dec. 1 (final bill). There are no withdrawals on Jan. 1 or Feb. 1.
  2. A six-month instalment program. The instalment amounts for the interim and final billing are automatically deducted from the bank account on each due date listed on the bills, equaling six withdrawals in total. In 2024, the dates are:
Interim residential and non-residentialFinal residential and non-residential

March 27

A 10-month program offers a more stable and equalized payment plan which is also more predictable and easier to budget for. The billings will be sent out at the same time as those not registered in the City’s PTP program.
