Electronic Payment Options

These methods of payment are among the least costly for the municipality – help Norfolk keep the cost of collections low by considering the following electronic payment options.

  • Internet and Telephone Banking using your Property Roll Number indicated on the tax bill.  Please use the last 15 digits only.
  • At any ATM Machine in Canada.
  • By credit card using a third-party service provider.

Norfolk County does not offer the option of paying property taxes using a credit card.  However, you may be able to use a third-party service provider that offers payment by credit card.  Third-party providers charge a fee for their service.  Contact the third-party service provider for more information.  An example of a third-party service provider is Plastiq* at www.plastiq.com.

Be advised that there may be a delay of several days between the date a payment is made and the date the County receives payment from a third-party service provider.  Payments are credited to the property tax account effective the date funds are received by the County.  Payments not received by the due date will incur late payment charges.
