In person

You can pay your bill at the Township office at 318 Canborough Street in Smithville. We are open Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, excluding holidays.

We accept:

  • cash
  • debit
  • cheques
  • bank drafts
  • money orders

We do not accept credit card. To make a credit card payment, please see the credit card option.

Bank or financial institution

You can make a payment at any branch or ATM of any major bank. You can also pay your bill through telephone or online banking as well. To set-up online banking, you will need your 19-digit tax roll number. Your property account number is your 19-digit tax roll number. Some banks only take 18 digits. If so, drop the last zero in your roll number.

To avoid late charges, make a payment at least three business days before the due date.
