Tax Payment Plan (monthly TPP)
Time: All Day

The TPP Plan runs from January to December each year. Your first five monthly payments will be estimated based on your previous year's tax levy/12.

As of 2020 ONLY direct debit payments are accepted.

Please submit a signed and dated direct debit authorization form from YOUR bank ONLY by email or village mail box by 15 January 2021 if you want to enroll in the TPP.  No exceptions.

Any adjustments required as a result of the annual levy will be spread over the last seven payments of the year and the revised payments continue until May of the following year.  For those on TPP a letter stating your monthly amount will be included in the annual May tax notice.

The tax notice received is the agreement of the monthly amount. You do not need to submit a new form in the next year, the tax letter received is the contract amount.  A VOID cheque is not required.

TPP payments will be debited on the 1st of every month from July 1, 2020 continuing until June 1, 2021.
