The Tax Instalment Payment Plan Service or TIPPS is a monthly tax instalment payment plan that allows property owners to make consecutive monthly payments for taxes rather than a single annual payment.
The TIPPS program starts on January 1st of each year, and payments are made on the first banking day of each month by automatic withdrawal from an account with cheque-writing privileges at a financial institution.
The TIPPS program collects taxes for the calendar year that runs January 1st to December 31st and ensures that all taxes are paid.
To enroll in the TIPPS program, please complete this form and mail it to the address below. It is also available on the main floor of City Hall. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.
To apply for TIPPS for the current year, your application must be submitted to the City Taxation Branch before April 10. Applications received after that date are effective the following year.
