Municipal tax bill

Citizens now only receive ONE TAX BILL. Water consumption bill now appears directly on the municipal tax bill (property tax).

Your municipal tax bill includes two levels of taxation. One amount represents taxes for local services and another amount is a quote-part related to the Agglomeration of Montréal services (such as police and fire department and public transportation).


Tax bills are sent in January. The first instalment is due on February 18th, 2021* and the second on May 20th, 2021*.

* At the council meeting of January 18, 2021, a draft by-law was adopted to postpone tax payments for the year 2021. This by-law will be officially in force only after its adoption, if applicable, at the next council meeting on February 8, 2021. If this is the case, the payment dates would be postponed to May 20 and August 19, 2021.

Tax Payment Methods

Taxpayers can pay their municipal taxes using the following methods:

  1. At City Hall (cash, cheque, debit card);
  2. At the automated banking machines of most financial institutions, including Caisses Populaires;
  3. By mail, using the payment stub;
  4. By depositing a cheque or money order using the payment stub at City Hall or in the designated box at chalet Peter-Williamson;
  5. Online through most banking institutions (please enter the 18 digits of the serial number which appears on your payment stub.  Do NOT enter dashes or hyphens)

⇒ Credit cards are not accepted for tax payment.


Mortgage Companies

If you have an agreement with your mortgage company for the payment of your tax bill, and if they have informed us accordingly, a copy of your bill will be forwarded to them.

If you sell your property during the year, you need to provide the purchaser with the tax bill for the year in progress so he/she can make payments, if need be.  The tax bill is directly linked to the BUILDING and not to the owner. This is why we will not be issuing the tax statement in the new owner’s name.


Agglomeration VS Local Jurisdiction

Since January 1st, 2006, the City of Montreal provides citizens with agglomeration services and manages a variety of equipment for the whole island of Montreal. To reflect this, the general property tax for agglomeration services is applied to all taxpayers on the Island of Montreal. However, local taxes paid by all taxpayers in each neighbouring cities must also be taken into consideration.
