Municipal property tax notices are mailed twice a year and are due in four installments:
Taxes may be paid by cash, debit or cheque at the Town Hall Finance Department 56 Queen Street, at most banks in person or via online banking and through enrolling in a pre-authorized payment plan. There is also a convenient drop box on the front door of the Canton Muncipal office for after-hours payment. Please be advised that the drop box at Town Hall will not be available due to construction.
If you are interested in the pre-authorized property tax payment plan, please complete the application found under Forms Central.
