2021 Interim Tax Bills in the Mail
The City of Windsor 2021 Interim property tax bills have been mailed. If you have not received your tax bill(s) or have questions in regard to the amount of the bill, please call 311 (alternate: 519-255-2489) or email email@example.com.
Please note that failure to receive a tax bill does not exempt property owners from paying their taxes. Penalties and interest (which can add up to 15% of the taxes on an annual basis) will be added for late payments.
Consistent with prior years, the Interim billing amount is approved at 50% of the property taxes paid in 2020. Changes resulting from Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) assessment updates are reflected on the tax bill. An adjustment on the tax bill titled “2021 Interim Tax Cap Adjustment” reflects any adjustment necessary to meet the 50% limitation. Changes resulting from the Final 2021 Municipal/Education Tax Rates will be reflected on the Final 2021 tax bill, which is typically mailed in June.
Payment must be received by the City on or before the due dates noted below.
Due dates for regular tax payments are:

Installment Date Plan: February 17, March 17, April 14, 2021
