Property Tax Prepayment Plan

Save for next year’s property tax bill through convenient pre-authorized withdrawals from your bank account. Spread your estimated bill over 10 monthly pre-payments.

Our Property Tax Prepayment Plan acts as a savings account to prepare for your next property tax bill. By starting in August and having 10 withdrawals taken from your bank account, you will have money in your tax account ready to apply to the amount due next year. Your property tax bill will show how much you have prepaid and whether there is still a balance owing.

How to Apply:

  • Complete the Property Taxes Prepayment Application Form.
  • Attached a ”void” personalized cheque from your bank account.
  • Return completed application to the Revenue Services Department by July 15 to start withdrawals on August 1.
  • You do not need to apply each year. The Plan starts again each August.

To Qualify:

  • To be eligible to join the Property Tax Prepayment Plan, all tax and utilities accounts on the property must be up-to-date.
