Can I apply for TIPP after July 20? Yes! Your monthly payments will be prorated over the number of remaining months leading up to and including May. You will pay more on your monthly budget in the first year to catch up, but it will even out the following year.

 

My taxes are currently included in my mortgage payment. Can I still enroll in TIPP? No, as you would be doubling your tax payment.

 

Do I need to apply each year? No, you only have to apply once unless you sell your property. You will remain on the plan until you submit the TIPP cancellation form.

 

Does TIPP transfer to my new home? No, you must cancel your previous account and reapply. The property tax credit stays on the property and doesn’t follow the owner. You should find your TIPP credit amount included in your Statement of Adjustment from your lawyer.

 

Do I need to apply separately for each property I own? Yes, please complete an application for each property.

 

What is a Supplementary Tax Notice and how does it affect TIPP?
A supplementary tax bill is issued when a new building or an addition/renovation to an existing building is completed during the calendar year. In the event this amount is left unpaid after the due date, your TIPP payment amount
will be recalculated to include the supplementary tax.
