Make Budgeting Easier with the Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP)

Sign up for TIPP by May 31, 2021 to have your annual property tax divided into equal monthly payments!

Simply complete the Pre-Authorization Form and attach a void cheque or account authorization form from your financial institution. Your annual taxes will be divided by the remaining months of the year and the monthly payment will be deducted from your account on the last business day of each month.

Already on TIPP? The amount withdrawn from your account will be adjusted to reflect the actual 2021 tax levy.
Receipts will only be issued upon request.
