T.I.P.P. Program - is available!
The Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) is a monthly tax payment plan that allows rate payers to make consecutive monthly payments that are deducted automatically from their bank account.
The TIPP Program starts on January 1st of each year and payments are made on the fifteenth banking day of each month through automatic withdrawal from an account with chequing privileges at a financial institution.
The TIPP program collects taxes for the calendar year January 1st to December 31st and ensures that all taxes are paid without penalty.
Deadline to sign up is February 29, 2016 for the 2016 tax year.
Please fill out the TIPP Application Form, bring in a void cheque and drop off both to our office today!
