2016 Tax Installment Payment Plan
2016 TIPP (tax installment payment plan) cheques should be dropped off at the Town Office before January 15.
To be eligible for TIPP's:
• previous taxes must be paid in full
• payments must start in January of the current taxation year
• your monthly payment is calculated by dividing your previous year annual property tax by 12
• typically people make six payments from Jan to Jun
• when you receive your current year tax notice, it will show a credit amount that is equal to the payments made to date and the balance remaining, you can then adjust your Jul to Dec (six) payments to an amount that will equal a zero balance by year end (Dec 31) and no late penalties will be applied to your account
• we request all postdated cheques be made for the same day of the month
• please call the Office if you require more information

Reminder to all residents and business owners that sidewalks are to be cleared within 48 hours of a snowfall. Please make arrangements to have your sidewalks taken care of if you will be away.
