What is the TIPP?
The monthly tax payment plan allows taxpayers to make automatic monthly payments for taxes rather than a single annual payment.
How does TIPP work?
The Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) provides property owners with the opportunity to make 12 consecutive monthly property tax payments as opposed to a single, annual payment, making it easier to budget and eliminating the risk of a late payment. Payments will be withdrawn automatically from a bank account on the 1st of each month.
If a property owner is enrolled on the TIPP Program, the monthly installment payment is automatically adjusted to reflect any change in the current year’s tax levels. The Property Tax Notice will indicate the adjusted monthly payment amount.
Please note any arrears utilities that is transferred to the tax roll will affect your TIPP withdrawals.
Benefits to the TIPP program:
- No waiting in line to make payments
- No missed deadlines
- No concerns with regards to payments being lost in the mail
- No tax penalties (as long as monthly payments are kept current)
- No lump sum payments
- No need to reapply each year, once you are enrolled
