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.

TPP June 1 (Update - PLEASE READ if you are on monthly plan especially)

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.  

Residents receive their tax notice in May. As a TPP Plan participant, your monthly payments will then be revised for your June Payment. 

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. 

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 mail box by 15 May 2019.  The tax notice received is the agreement of the monthly amount.

How to apply

Contact the Village office for a TPP Form and payment amount prior to January 15th of the Current year.

You can join the TPP Plan if:

  • you have a chequing account
  • your application is received before January 15th of the current Year.
  • If you are not already in arrears of taxes
  • If you have just purchased a property in the Village or are a new resident
