Property Tax and Assessments

The Town of Torbay understands that the COVID-19 pandemic and recent lockdown has placed unexpected financial burdens on many of our residents. To help alleviate some of that burden, effective immediately, the Town of Torbay is deferring all tax payments, including residential, commercial, and business taxes, until the end of June, and there will be no interest charged until June 30.


Pre-authorized Debit Agreements

If a Pre-Authorized Payment Plan was in place during 2020, it will automatically renew for 2021. The 2021 Pre-Authorization Plan will remain in effect and continue each consecutive year until the customer notifies the Town of cancellation in writing.

If you wish to cancel or discontinue your PAD agreement, you must contact the town office at 437-6532 or email kosmond@torbay.ca as soon as possible.

This agreement will commence on January 2 and /or 15, 2021 unless otherwise instructed.
