Payment Options

We offer a variety of ways for you to pay your property tax bills.  Although we accept payment in person by cash or cheque, we encourage residents to use debit, enroll in a pre-authorized payment plan or make payment online as a precautionary measure against Covid-19.

Pre-Authorized Payment Plan

Ratepayers are encouraged to register for the pre-authorized payment plan to conveniently make property tax payments. The plan enables you to have either 12 monthly payments or 4 installment payments taken directly from your bank account.

Your tax account must be in good standing to qualify.

If you are interested in the plan please complete the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan Enrollment Form. Completed forms can be:

  • Dropped off at Town Hall in the drop off slot at the rear of the Municipal Building at 271 Sandwich St. South
  • Faxed to 519-736-0011
  • Mailed to:
  • Town of Amherstburg - Finance Department
  • 271 Sandwich St. South
  • Amherstburg, Ontario
  • N9V 2A5

Making changes to account information

Once you have a pre-authorized payment plan in place, any changes made to your information must be submitted to the finance department in writing at least TWO WEEKs prior to the next payment date.

To unregister from the plan please complete the Pre-Authorized Payment Cancellation Form.

Online and telephone Banking

You can register for online banking payments with your bank. Contact your financial institution for further details.

Post-dated cheques
