You can now sign up to have your property tax, and water and sewer utility bills sent to you electronically.  It's free!  Visit to sign up today. To start, you will set up your own e-post account and then search for 'Brockton' to sign up to receive your bills by e-post.

    •  Have your water and sewer bill with your 14 digit account number handy

Pre-Authorized Payment Plan

You can sign up to have pre-authorized payments debited from your bank account for property taxes, or water and sewer utilities monthly or on the bill due date.

To sign up for this plan please use one of the following forms:


Post-dated cheques can be submitted to the Municipal Office and will be posted for the date of the cheque.

Cheques not honoured by your bank will result in a charge of $45.00 being added to your account. Please ensure that your cheques are signed and filled out completely.

  • Property Taxes

    • Use the 19 digit roll number for your account number 
    • Your tax roll number appears on your tax bill and looks like this: 4104-010-002-01890-0000

Online Payments

Please ensure your account number for online payments is correct! Remember to check your account numbers for all online payment submissions! Tax accounts are 19 digits long and begin with 41-04. Utility account numbers are 14 digits and begin with 3.

This will ensure payments are applied to the correct account, and will assist in avoiding any additional fees due to late payments.
