Internet or Telephone Banking
To set up internet or telephone banking you will need to input your 15 digit roll number as indicated on your tax bill. If this does not work, contact your financial institution’s helpdesk.

Financial Institutions
Payment can be made at most financial institutions on or before the due date.

Online Credit Card Payment                       

Online credit card payment using our eServices page, follow the link and instructions to pay using Visa or  Mastercard. A small fee is applicable.

By Mail
If you are mailing your payment please enclose the payment stub to ensure payment is applied to your account and write you tax roll number on the cheque. Make cheque payable to the “Town of Fort Erie” and mail to: 1 Municipal Centre Dr, Fort Erie, Ontario, L2A 2S6. Post-dated cheques are accepted.

Town Hall
Located at 1 Municipal Centre Dr and open 8:30am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday. Payment types accepted are cash, interact, cheque, and money order. Payment by credit card is NOT accepted in person at this time. Please use the drop box in the parking lot after business hours.

If a mortgage company or agent pays your tax bill, it is your responsibility to forward it to them. A receipt will be sent to you upon payment of your final bill.

Payment must be received at Town Hall no later than 4:30pm on the due date. Upon default of any tax installment, interest at a rate of 1.25% per month is added on the first day of each month thereafter. Payments on account are applied first toward the outstanding interest and penalty, then to the oldest outstanding taxes. The tax collector has no authority to waive penalty and interest for any reason whatsoever. Failure to receive a tax notice does not excuse the responsibility for payment of taxes and penalty.

If your tax account is in arrears and you wish to make payment arrangements, please contact us at 905-871-1600 ext. 2315.
