Interested in the tax installment plan (TIPS)?

The town of Calmar offers a payment plan that enables you to pay your taxes in 12 equal amounts via automatic withdrawal. It’s a completely safe and effective way to pay your monthly installments, instead of one annual payment. There is no charge to join the plan and no penalties are applied while on the plan.

You can join the plan at any time during the year. If you are already on the plan, you do not need to re-apply each year. If you join part way through the year, you must make up any “missed” payments. For example, if you decide to join the plan in April, you need to make up the payments for January, February, March and April.

To enroll in TIPS:

Please contact the Tax Department for your payment details and fill out a Pre-Authorized Debit Agreement to return to the Town Office with a void cheque.

*Monthly payments are withdrawn from your account on the first day of each month.

*If your TIPS payment is returned from the bank, you have 10 days to make up the payment to remain on the plan. If you experience three NSF’s during a one year period, you will automatically be removed from the TIPS plan and any amount owing at that time will be due and subject to penalties.

*Please note that as per the Utility Bylaw #2023-11, when utility bills are transferred to the Tax account, a notice will be sent out declaring removal from TIPS if FULL amount isn’t paid within 15 days of the letter being sent.

*If at any point you’re removed from TIPS, the outstanding balance will be subject to any applicable penalties to date and will be due immediately.
