Pay Taxes

Your property taxes can be paid through most financial institutions, either by visiting the branch or using their online bill payment. Alternatively, you can visit the Finance section on the main floor of City Hall to pay your taxes. By signing up for our Pre-Authorized Tax Payment Plan, you can have your taxes automatically deducted from your bank account. 

A drop box is also available outside City Hall on the Erie Avenue side of the building (please do not deposit cash into the drop box). City Hall is located at 4310 Queen Street. There is also another drop box at the front door of City Hall facing Queen Street. 

With the growing concern and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 virus, The City of Niagara Falls understands what a difficult and stressful time this is for everyone and we are taking active measures to support our customers.

We invoked a high priority response by closing the doors to customers, however, our main focus remains on providing our customers with service, while ensuring the safety and well-being of our employees and our customers. Customers are encouraged to reach out to us my email or telephone:
