Tax Payments

There are multiple ways to pay your taxes with the Municipality of Magnetawan:

  1. Online banking Set the Municipality of Magnetawan up as a payee and utilize the first 15 digits of your property roll number (starting with 4944 do not include the decimal point), as the account number. If you are paying through online banking, please ensure you have allowed at least 3 business days for processing. Check with your financial institution to ensure your payment will be received by the Municipality by the due date.
  2. Cash
  3. Cheque
    We accept post dated cheques as well. Please allow sufficient time for your payment to reach the municipal office by the due date to avoid any interest charges.
  4. Credit Card Online through Plastiq. Mastercard, Visa, Discover, JCB and Diners Club are accepted.

Reminder notices are mailed out following each tax installment due date. These notices will only be mailed to properties showing arrears in excess of $10.00. Contact the Treasury Department if you have not received your Tax Notice. Interest and penalties will be added to all unpaid property taxes on the first day of each month after the due date. Failure to receive a bill does NOT relieve your responsibility to pay property taxes or any penalty charges.
