Payment Options

If you have not received your tax bill, please contact the OSM Township Office at 705-295-6852.

Cheque payments can be sent:

  • Via mail to:
    The Township of Otonabee-South Monaghan
    P.O. Box 70,
    20 Third Street
    Keene, ON K0L 2G0

Please mail cheques well ahead of the due date to avoid interest and penalty charges. Taxpayers assume responsibility for late arrival of mailed cheques.

  • There is also a dropbox at the front door of the Municipal Office where you may leave cheques if the office is closed; and
  • You may also pay by cheque in-person at the Municipal Office during regular business hours: Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Please note:

  • Post-dated cheques cannot be returned for any reason because they are held at the bank.

Credit Card online through Paymentus
(You will be redirected to the Paymentus Online Tax Payment System site.)

  • In person payments can be made by cash, cheque, or debit only, at the Municipal Office, during regular business hours:
    • Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

  • Over-the-counter payments can be accepted at the following financial institutions, if you have a bank account there:
    • Kawartha Credit Union,
    • TD Canada, or
    • Scotia Bank.

If you are set up for internet banking through your own financial institution, you can pay your taxes like you would pay any other bill. 

Search for "Otonabee South Monaghan Taxes" or "Otonabee Taxes" and add us as a payee. 

Your account number with the Township is your roll number. 
Your roll number can be found at the top of your tax bill and it starts with 15-06.  Depending on the financial institution you may or may not need to include the dashes or the last four zeros of your roll number.

Please Note:
If you have multiple properties, a separate payment is required for each roll number. 

Also, please allow 2 to 3 business days for the payment to process before the tax due date to avoid interest and penalties.

Residents can sign up to have their property taxes taken out of their bank account on a monthly basis or by installment on the due date.

  • Monthly payments are taken out on the 15th of each month.
  • Installment payments are taken out on the 16th of the month that the installment is due (i.e. February's installment comes out on February 16th). 

To sign up for either of these options, please fill out the preauthorized payment enrollment form and submit it with a void cheque. 

These documents can be submitted:

  • online, using the online preauthorized payment enrollment form
  • PDF version of the preauthorized payment enrollment form scanned and emailed
  • PDF version printed and filled in with void cheque submitted to the Township office in person,
  • PDF version printed and filled in, with a void cheque mailed to the Township of Otonabee-South Monaghan,
    P.O. Box 70, 20 Third Street, Keene, ON K0L 2G0

Any returned payments are subject to an administration fee of $25.00. 

If two payments are returned within a 12 month period, your preauthorized payment plan will be cancelled and any taxes owing will become subject to penalty and interest.

You must notify the Township at least 15 days before the next scheduled payment if there are any changes to your banking information or if you would like to cancel your preauthorized payments.

If you sell your property, do not forget to tell us so we can cancel your preauthorized payment.
