At its meeting last week, Brampton City Council approved a new cashless payment process for property taxes and Building Division fees as part of its ongoing process enhancements and safety measures in light of COVID-19.

For safer financial transactions among residents, business owners, and employees, effective in 2021, the City will only collect property taxes and Building Division fees through the following methods (Cash payments will no longer be accepted): 

  • Pre-authorized payments
  • Online banking
  • Phone banking
  • In-person payments through personal banking branches
  • In-person debit-card payments
  • In-person credit-card payments (Building fees only)

To ensure payments remain accessible to groups like youth and seniors, these changes will not apply to payment methods for things like licences, Recreation charges, POA court fees, Animal Services and Performing Arts.

Changes officially come into effect January 1, 2021.
