Pre-Authorized Tax Payments

Application Deadline:

This form must be fully completed and accepted by the County of Paintearth No. 18 no later than December 15th, in order to participate in the Plan for the following taxation year.  The tax account(s) must also have a zero balance at December 31st in order to participate.

If Payments are from a chequing account please include one of your personal cheques marked “VOID” and return your form and if the account information is drawn on any other account, please attach a printout from your bank of your banking information.

Here’s how Pre-Authorized Tax Payment Works:

It’s a modern, easy method to pay your annual property taxes, with the benefit of averaged monthly payments over the calendar year.  There is no inconvenience of cheque writing; cost of postage; or that trip to pay your bills.  With your permission, your payments will be made automatically through your bank or financial institution account.

Your payments will change twice (2) a year, every year, once in January and once after the actual tax levy is set for that taxation year.

From January to whenever the new tax levies are mailed, you will accumulate a credit and once the actual tax levy is applied your credit balance will be deducted from the current years levy and the system will then take the balance owing and divide it by the remaining months of the year.

You are still mailed a tax notice each year and your new payment amount for the remaining months will be stated on your annual tax notice.

You as the owner(s) are the only one(s) who can cancel your tax instalment payments and this must be done in writing within 15 days of the next payment that is due.
