Property Tax Payment Options
The City of London's Pre-Authorized Payment Plan offers the convenience of paying your tax bill over 10 months through automatic withdrawals from your banking institution.
Please contact your financial institution for details on how to set up your automatic withdrawals. Other payment options are outlined on the back of your tax bill.
For questions regarding the assessed value of your property, please contact the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation who administers all valuations of property.
If you disagree with your property assessment, you have the option to appeal to the Assessment Review Board. The deadline for the appeal process is March 31.
Beginning with the 2009 tax year, assessment appeals for residential, farm, managed forest or conservation land properties can only be filed with the ARB if:
- A Request for Reconsideration (RFR) has been filed with the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation by March 31st; AND
- A decision on the RFR has been received by the taxpayer noting a revised appeal deadline.
For more information on the appeal process, please contact the Assessment Review Board at 1-800-263-3237.

Tax Rebate Programs
Registered charities which occupy property in the commercial or industrial class may be eligible for property tax rebates of 40 per cent. All those who wish to apply must have a valid registration number issued by The Canada Revenue Agency and submit an application by the last day of February following the tax year.
The application form can be downloaded as an online fillable PDF document. It is also available from the tax team.
The tax rebate offered to charities is intended to offset property tax increases that resulted from the elimination of the Business Occupancy Tax. Qualifying charities must apply each year for the rebate.
Tax Refund Information
Upon application to the Treasure of a local municipality made in accordance with Section 357 or 258, the local municipality may cancel, reduce or refund all or part of taxes levied on land in the year in respect of which the application is made.
