The Township of Hamilton Tax department collects property taxes on behalf of Northumberland County, the School Boards and for the Township. You can choose to change your school support by filling out the Application for Direction of School Support form and submitting it to the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). The taxes we collect provide services, which include roads, parks and rec, garbage collection, fire and OPP.

Methods of Payment

We have multiple payment options available to help you pay your property taxes on time. Please let us know if you have changed your mailing address by sending the Mailing Address Change form or email requests.

Please note that late payments will have a penalty of 1.25% added on the first day of the month following the due date, and on the first day of each calendar month after that. Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse you from the responsibility for payment.

Property Assessment

The Township of Hamilton does not determine property value assessments. Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) administers a uniform, province wide property assessment system which determines current values and classifications for all properties in Ontario. The authority to do so is in accordance within the provisions of the Assessment Act.

MPAC updates property assessments every four years. Assessment increases are phased in over the four-year period.
