Tax Payment Plan (TPP) 2019

The S.V. of Sandy Beach Tax Payment Plan can help. Using the TPP allows you to spread out your tax payments throughout the year.  Please read the instructions here for your monthly calculation if you are on the TPP or would like to sign on.  As of May 15, 2019 ONLY direct debit payments will be accepted - a direct debit authorization form is required from your BANK and drop off the signed and dated form.

How it works

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 and is in effect a credit as your taxes is already paid off.

Residents receive their tax notice en of May. As a TPP Plan participant, your monthly payments will then be revised for your June Payment, made on July 1st. 

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 - the credit.

VERY IMPORTANT: ALL TPP's - Payments for TPP for 2019 will not accept 12 post dated cheques anymore - please submit a direct debit authorization form from YOUR bank by email or village mailbox by 15 May 2019.  The tax notice letter received is the agreement of the monthly amount.
