There are a number of ways City of Cambridge property owners can pay their tax bills.

Pre-authorized payments

The City of Cambridge offers several pre-authorized payment plans for your convenience. These plans automatically withdraw your payment amount directly from your bank account. Complete an application form and include a void cheque to apply.

Contact us to learn more about our pre-authorize payment plans.

Pay through your bank

You can pay your tax bill at your bank branch or through your financial institution's online or telephone banking services. You need your roll number to make a payment through your bank.

Please ensure that you make your payment five days before the due date to avoid interest charges. We consider payments complete once our office receives them in good order.

The City of Cambridge allows you to pay your tax bill by credit card online or by phone.

Pay online or call 1 (877) 810-7295.
