Kudos to Councillor Godwin Chan for bringing this motion forward. Residents can pay their property tax online using Visa or Mastercard, beginning with the March 2, 2020 interim tax bill installment.
Council approved a new level of service for property tax bills – online payment by credit card. In 2020, Richmond Hill will contract Paymentus (Canada) Corporation to accept online credit card payments for property tax on behalf of Richmond Hill.
Paymentus will charge a convenience fee of 2.5 per cent of the tax payment amount, which will be paid by the payer (the property holder).
