How does the Pre-Authorized Prepayment Plan (PAPP) work?

Monthly payments will be collected on the first day of each months for 10 months starting August 1st and ending May 1st. There are no withdrawals for the months of June and July.

At the beginning of June, tax notices are mailed to property owners. The notice has details of your current year's taxes less the total prepayments collected. You are responsible for paying any difference, as well as applying for the Home Owner Grant by the tax due date to avoid any penalties.

Your written authorization is required to start, change or withdraw from the plan. The written notification must be received, along with a void cheque, 10 business days prior to the next scheduled payment. You can withdraw from the plan at anytime. The application forms are available at City Hall or online in under Pre-payment Plan.
