How to Pay Your Tax Bill

Due to COVID-19, City Hall is still closed to the public. However, City staff are still working and available to you via phone, email or appointment.

During the month of July, commercial and residential tax bills are being mailed to property owners.

How can I pay my bill?
Did you know that most payments to the City can be made by debit by calling 311? There is no need to visit; contact us by phone at 311 or 754-CITY (2489), or email access@stjohns.ca to discuss options.

The easiest way to make payments on your taxes is online or through bank deduction. To set up online payments with your bank, locate your account number on your municipal tax bill. Most banks want you to omit the first two zeros when setting up the payment. Here are the names the City’s most common banks use for this preauthorized payment:

NAME OF BANK NAME TO SEARCH
