Ontario is giving taxpayers in unincorporated areas more time to pay each of the four 2020 Provincial Land Tax installments.

Taxpayers will have 90 extra days to pay without incurring interest or penalties.  For example, taxpayers who would be required to pay the April 7 property tax installment will have until July 6 to pay without interest or penalties. 

This action is complementary to new support for municipalities that was announced, which defers the upcoming quarterly remittance of education property tax to school boards by 90 days.

The Provincial Land Tax is the property tax paid in unincorporated areas of northern Ontario outside municipal boundaries. The Province directly collects this tax to help fund community services, such as policing, land ambulance, public health and social services in unincorporated areas.
