COVID-19 Relief Measures for Property Tax Payments

In response to recent events stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Windsor has introduced the following deferral measures to assist property owners with the financial burden as it relates to property taxes:

  • The third installment for the 2020 Interim Property Taxes has been changed from April 15, 2020 to June 30, 2020.
  • All pre-authorized payment (PAP) withdrawals scheduled in the months of April, May and June will continue to be withdrawn on the scheduled dates unless otherwise cancelled/adjusted by the property owner via written request by email to propertytax@citywindsor.ca.
  • A PAP plan can be cancelled, suspended or deferred:
    • Cancelled – Upon receipt of a written request from the property owner, the Taxation Department will cancel the PAP plan and the property owner will be responsible to make payments by other means going forward (see payment options below).
    • Suspended – Upon receipt of a written request from the property owner, no withdrawals will be processed during the months of April, May and June, and the property owner will be responsible to make payments by other means going forward (see payment options below). The PAP plan will be reinstated in July 2020 provided the balance on the tax account is zero ($0) at June 30, 2020.
    • Deferred – Upon receipt of a written request from the property owner, no withdrawals will be processed from April until June 30, 2020, whereby the balance owing on the tax account will be withdrawn in full. The original PAP plan will be reinstated in July 2020. Property owners may make payments by other means (see payment options below) throughout April, May and June.
  • All postdated cheques for the April 15, 2020 installment were cashed on the scheduled date unless a request for cancellation or deferral to June 30, 2020 by the property owner was made by email to propertytax@citywindsor.ca.
  • Charges for Non-Sufficient Funds related to property tax payments will be waived through the period ending June 30, 2020.
  • There will be no late payment charges in either form, penalty and/or interest, through the period ending June 30, 2020.
  • If a pre-authorized payment was withdrawn or a cheque cashed, and no written request to stop or defer the payment was received by the taxation division of the City of Windsor from the property owner, no refund may be requested.
