TIPP Program deadline approaching

The TIPP (Tax Installment Payment Plan) allows ratepayers to pay their taxes over a 12 month period with out fear of receiving a penalty. As long as their is no money owing on an account, ratepayers can come into the office before January 15, 2018 and sign up for the TIPP program. The first 6 months of payments will be based on the taxes from 2017. When 2018 taxes come out, the remaining 6 months of payments will be based on the remaining balance owing. The preferred method of payment is post dated cheques dated the 2nd last business day of the month. for those who do not wish to use cheques, they must attend at the office and make the payment by the 15th of each month. Failure to meet these obligations could mean removal from the program which than means all penalties would apply. For those trying to stay on a budget, this program is a great asset.
