Property Tax

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for placing a value on all properties in Ontario. Property taxes are calculated by multiplying a tax rate, as set by the Council of the Township of Whitewater Region, by the property's assess value.

Pre-Authorized Payment Plans

The Township of Whitewater Region offers payment plans for the due date and for monthly payments.

Due Date – On each due date the tax installment amount will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account.

Monthly – On the 20th of each month (or the next business day) a pre-determined amount will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account.

Benefits of Choosing a PAP Plan:

  • No more worries about missing due dates or incurring late payment charges.
  • Monthly payments allow for easier budgeting.
  • Save on postage and transportation costs.

In the event that your taxes are not current, automatic payment plans may be customized to bring accounts up to date. Some restrictions may apply.
