The City of Brampton offers a number of convenient ways to pay your property taxes. We’ve also just recently become more environment friendly by eliminating the return envelope. Taxpayers can use any of the below easy options to make tax payments:
1. Pre-Authorized Tax Payment Plan (PTP)
The City withdraws your tax payments automatically from your chequing account (you can't use line of credit, credit card or savings accounts). From your pre-authorized payment notice, you will know the dates the payments will be deducted each month and they’ll be recorded automatically on your chequing account statement. There are no service charges or fees for enrolling in the plan. If you require further information or wish to enrol, please visit the Pre-Authorized Payment Program.
2. Pre-Authorized Payments for Commercial/Industrial/Multi-Residential Properties
The City of Brampton is offering pre-authorized payments for non-residential properties. The tax rate for non-residential properties is not always set at the same time as residential properties, so final instalments may not be divided over six equal payments. If you require further information or wish to enrol, please visit the Pre-Authorized Payment Program.
3. Postdated Cheques
The City will accept postdated cheques corresponding to the tax due dates on the stubs and hold for deposit as they come due. You can drop off postdated cheques in person or mail them. Please make cheques payable to "Brampton Taxes". Postdated cheques cannot exceed one year from the first issue date.
4. At a Bank or Other Financial Institution
Property taxes are payable at most banks or trust companies (financial institutions may charge for this service).
5. By Mail
To send payments by mail, please address them to the City of Brampton, PO Box 4263 Station A Toronto ON M5W 5T5. Please make all cheques payable to "Brampton Taxes" and write your 17-digit Tax Roll Number on each cheque.
6. Pay In Person.
Visit a Service Brampton location to make a payment in person. Click here for locations and hours of operation. Debit and cheque payments are accepted at the in-person locations. After hours, payments by cheque may be placed in a sealed envelope and deposited into a Tax drop box. See below for locations.
7. Drop Boxes
After hours, payments by cheque may be placed in a sealed envelope in a tax drop box:
- City Hall – 2 Wellington St W: Tax drop box is located in the ground floor lobby adjacent to the parking garage elevator.
Please ensure your roll number is written on the cheque to avoid a delay in applying payments.
Please do not deposit cash into the Tax drop boxes.
If paying property taxes by internet banking and/or telephone banking, enter your 17-digit Tax Roll Number as the requested account number.
If paying property taxes by cheque, please clearly print your 17-digit Tax Roll Number on the front of the cheque.

9. Pay Property Taxes By Credit Card
Credit card payments are not accepted directly by the City of Brampton. However, Property Taxes can be paid online by credit card using an online bill payment service provider. The service provider may charge service fees and there may be restrictions on the types of credit cards accepted. The City of Brampton receives only the billed tax amount. Payment is processed by the City on the date we receive the funds which may be a few days after payment is made. Please refer to the service provider's website for terms and conditions of their service, charges and payment processing times.
