 Pre-Authorized Payment Plans 
Monthly Payment Plan (PAP)

This program consists of eleven payments, automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the 15th of the month.  Payments will commence in January and continue until November.  No deductions will be made in December. No missed due dates or late payment charges. No line ups or mailing/postage costs.

How Does This Plan Work?

  • The pre-authorized payment plan will begin in January for the current year's taxes. It will consist of 11 monthly payments. In June of each year, the Township will recalculate your payment plan and adjust the July to November payments to reflect the current year's actual taxes. There will be no payments processed in the month of December.

  • Payments will be withdrawn on the 15th of each of the 11 months.
  • You will receive a payment schedule in December for the following year.  An updated payment schedule will be included with your Final Tax Bill for the adjusted July to November payments.
  • You will still continue to receive your Interim and Final tax bill; however this will be a statement only for your records. An additional payment will not be required.

IMPORTANT: If your assessment changes and you wish to have your monthly withdrawal amount increased or decreased, it is your responsibility to contact the Tax Department.  Adjustments are not done automatically.

Instalment Due Date Plan (ATIW)

Automatic withdrawal from your bank account on the installment due dates for the installment amounts. No missed due dates or late payment charges. No line ups or mailing/postage costs.

How Does This Plan Work?

  • This alternative will provide you with the convenience of automatic withdrawal from your bank account on the installment due dates for the installment amounts.

  • You will still receive an interim tax bill and a final tax bill each year. DO NOT PAY  They will serve as your notice for payment amounts and withdrawal dates.

 Additional Information

  • Past due balances must be paid before enrolling in either program.
  • If you sell your property, it is your responsibility to notify the tax department in writing to cancel further withdrawals.
  • Seven days written notice must be given to make any changes to your payment plan, this includes, change of banking information, cancellation etc.
  • Any payments that are not honoured by your bank will be subject to a returned item charge of $35.00.  Two returned payments in a 12 month period may result in termination of rights to be enrolled in the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan Program.
