Property Taxes & Assessments
Residential property taxes are determined by multiplying your current value assessment by the tax rate established annually. Markham collects property taxes on behalf of the City, the Region of York and Boards of Education.
Property taxes are billed twice annually. The interim bill is usually mailed approximately January, while the final tax bill is sent to residents in June.
If residents opt for the Pre-authorized Tax Payment (PTP) Plan, they have the flexibility of paying their taxes through automatic withdrawals in 11, 6 or 4 instalments.
Should the PTP Plan not be selected, residents are required to make their property tax payments in 4 instalments through one of the following methods:
- Postdated Cheque
- In Person at the Civic Centre
- After Hours
- At Your Financial Institution
- Computer/Telephone Banking
