TIPPS | Pre-Authorized Debit Plan

What is the TIPP/PADP Plan (Pre-Authorized Debit Plan)?

The Pre-Authorized Payment Plan allows for automatic pre-authorized debit withdrawals from your bank account in monthly instalments for property taxes and utilities if applicable. With no line ups, no late fees, no service charges and no postage, this property tax payment option provides total convenience for residents.

Automatic Withdrawal dates are on the 15th of each month. The months of January to June will be displayed on your tax bill as credits. Once the 2017 Levy is added to your tax account, the monthly amount adjusts to the balance owing for the remainder months from July to December.
