– by mail (cheque only)

– Dropping off payment at a drop box located outside of city hall

– At most banks and financial institutions in person, or online and telephone banking

– Through a mortgage company

Property owners are encouraged to contact Service Oshawa at 905-436-3311 or Durham Region Police at 905-579-1520 regarding incidents of companies offering a payment method not listed above.
