This is a reminder to Tax Account holders with pre-authorized withdrawals (on the 1st or 15th) each month. In 2020, property taxes due were calculated on a 12 month installment plan – so there will be a withdrawal in December as well.
Property tax bills are mailed twice a year. The first bill is the Interim Tax Bill which acts as a bridge to finance municipal services until the Final Tax Billing is complete.
The Interim Tax Bill is calculated on 50% of the previous year's total taxes. It is mailed in early February and due on the last working day in February.
The second bill is the Final Tax Bill which is calculated using the current value assessment (CVA) and the final tax rates as established by City Council. It is mailed in June & is due on the last working day in June.
Payments can be mailed to:
The Corporation of the City of North Bay
200 McIntyre Street East
PO Box 360
North Bay, ON P1B 8H8

Penalty and interest is charged on overdue taxes at the rate of 1.25% per month (15% per year) as authorized by Section 345 of the Municipal Act. These charges are added to overdue accounts on the 1st day of default and on the 1st of each month thereafter.
The City of North Bay issues reminder notices for past due payments four times a year. In March, May, July and September.
When payment is received by mail, the tax department will honour the postmark date should payment be received after the due date. A late charge applies to payments postmarked after the due date.
