Pay My Bill

Below are several options available for making tax or water and wastewater payments to Tay Township:

In Person

Payments can be made in person at the Tay Municipal Office using:

  • Cash
  • Cheque (made payable to Tay Township)
  • Debit Card

Payments received will be applied first to all interest and penalties, then to arrears and finally to current levies.

After Hours Drop Box

Payments can be placed in our After Hours Drop Box, located at the front doors of the Municipal building at 450 Park Street, Victoria Harbour. Please include your payment stub together with your cheque. Do not place cash in the After Hours Drop Box. 

Post-Dated Cheques

Post-dated cheques may be submitted to the Municipal Office and will be posted to your account based on the date recorded on the cheque.

Returned Cheques

Cheques returned by your financial institution are subject to an administration fee. Please ensure that your cheque is filled out completely and includes your signature.

Pre-Authorized Payment Plans

Tay Township offers pre-authorized payment plans for both taxes and water and sewer billing.      Pre-Authorized Payment forms are available on our website or at the Tay Township Municipal Office. If you are currently enrolled in one of our pre-authorized payment plans and wish to discontinue, please complete a cancellation form.

Telephone and Internet Banking

Telephone and online banking payments can be made through most major financial institutions. You may also make in-person bill payments at most bank branches by setting up Tay Township as a Payee on your debit card.


  • When setting up your tax account for telephone or online banking, please enter your 19-digit tax roll number as your account number.

Water and Wastewater Billing

  • When setting up your water/wastewater account for telephone or online banking, please enter your 8-digit utility account number as your account number.
