Tax Installment Payment Program
The Tax Installment Payment Program (TIPP) provides property owners with the opportunity to make 12 consecutive monthly property tax payments as opposed to a single, annual payment, making it easier to budget and eliminating the risk of late payments. Payments can only be made by automatic withdrawals from a bank account on the 1st of each month.
If a property owner is enrolled on the TIPP Program, the monthly installment payment is automatically adjusted to reflect any change in the current year’s tax levels. The Property Tax Notice will indicate the adjusted monthly payment amount.
Additionally, there are many benefits to the TIPP program:
- No need to come to the office to make your payment;
- No missed deadlines;
- No concerns with regards to payments being lost in the mail;
- No tax penalties;
- No lump sum payments; and
- No need to reapply each year, once you are enrolled;

Pre-Authorized Debit Agreement
Payments in the amount of 1/12th of the annual levy will be withdrawn on the first business day of each month from the chequing account provided with this application.
The first withdrawal may include an additional amount for plans starting after August 1. Written confirmation advising the month the plan is starting, the amount of the first withdrawal and future monthly withdrawals will be sent to the mailing address provided on the application.
TIPP payments will not be refunded or transferred to another account. If you sell your property, you must cancel your current plan and submit a new application for your property.
If funds are not available on the first business day the town will move payment to the first of the next month. If funds are not available on two consecutive withdrawal dates the town will cancel the agreement.
TIPP is a monthly plan for pre-payment of annual levies. Other charges applied to the property, like local improvements, are not included in the TIPP monthly payment and must be paid separately.
Changes to monthly payment amounts: Pre-notification will be sent to the mailing address on file if the monthly payment amount is increasing by $10.00 or more per month.
Changes to banking information: must be received in writing by completed a new TIPP agreement form. Written confirmation to advise of the new banking information and the effective month for change will be sent to the mailing address provided on the application.
Cancellations from the program: must be received in writing five (5) business days before the next withdrawal. A change in land title information for the property may cause the account to be removed from TIPP. The town may remove any account from the TIPP for missed payments.
