At the Tuesday February 16, 2021 Council Meeting, Town of Collingwood Council approved the extension of COVID-19 relief measures that will continue to support residents and businesses.  
•    Municipal property tax penalties will be waived on 2021 (current year) taxes only, until the end of April 2021.
•    Starting May 1, 2021, property tax penalties will once again be put in place for any overdue amounts.
•    As a reminder, it takes 2-3 business days for the Town to receive online payments.  If you are planning to make a payment online and wait until April 30, 2021, your account will incur penalty if your payment is received on May 1, 2021 and beyond.
•    All taxpayers have the option to continue with their regular payments if desired.
Please visit the Town of Collingwood’s COVID-19 Information Portal at www.collingwood.ca/covid.
 
If you have any questions about what these relief measures mean for you, please contact Customer Service by phone at 705-445-1030 or email townhall@collingwood.ca for support.
