Pre Authorized Tax Payment Plan



Now Available to all Property Owners

The monthly Pre-Authorized Tax Payment Plan (PAP) offers you the option of worry-free payments even if you are away for an extended period of time.

How the Plan Works

Your monthly tax payments will automatically be withdrawn from your bank account (or other financial institution) starting on the 15th day of the month following enrollment. There will be no withdrawals made in the month of December.

In January of each year, we will send you notification in writing of the installment amount that will be withdrawn on the 15th day of each month until the final tax levy for that calendar year is finalized.

Once the final tax levy for the year has been calculated, your revised payment schedule will appear on the back of your Final Tax Bill.  Your remaining withdraws will be updated from that point in time until the last PAP withdrawal of the year, which will be November 15th.

There is no withdrawal in December.

For more information about the plan please see the Pre-Authorized Tax Payments FAQs section of the website.

How to Apply

There are four times during the calendar year when you can join the pre-authorized payment plan.  See chart below.

To apply, you must  be the registered owner of the property and your property tax account must be up to date.  The Town needs to receive your completed application form and banking information before the applicable deadline.

Acceptable banking information must be either a personal cheque marked "VOID" or a banking form with a teller's stamp on it to verify accuracy.

If you have purchased a newly built home that has not yet been fully assessed by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) please contact our office to discuss your options or visit
