Township of Algonquin Highlands Pre-Authorized Payment Plan


Installment Plan on the Tax Due Dates

Beginning in 2010, a pre-authorized payment option for the installment due dates was made available for property taxpayers. If you are interested in signing up for this program, please print, fill out and return the attached agreement form before the deadline. Forms may also be picked up at the Township offices. Deadline is fifteen (15) days prior to the due date for the completed form to be received at the Township of Algonquin Highlands` tax office in order for deductions to be made in time for the next tax bill payment. 

Benefits of the Pre-Authorized Plan

  • Never worry about missing the due dates by having your tax payment withdrawn automatically from your bank account on the due dates each year.
  • Save the cost of postage or special trips and line-ups to pay your tax bills.
  • Avoid late payment penalties.
  • Avoid issuing cheques or keeping track of post-dated cheques.

Who May Enroll? 

  • If you do not have an overdue balance in your tax account, you are eligible to enroll. 
  • If your taxes are NOT paid with your mortgage, you are eligible to enroll.
  • If you have completed the Authorization Agreement, you are eligible to enroll.

How the Installment Plan on the Due Dates Works:

  • Your Tax installments will be deducted directly from your bank account on the tax bill due dates.
  •  You will receive the annual Interim and Final Tax Bills, which will advise you of the amounts that will be deducted from your bank account on the bill due dates.
  •  Please note that Supplementary Tax Bills, which may be issued from time to time, MUST BE PAID SEPARATELY TO THE MUNICIPALITY BY SOME WAY OTHER THAN PRE-AUTHORIZED PAYMENT.

Terms and Conditions: 

  • Enrollment in the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan (PAP) is automatically renewed each year.
  •  If, for any reason, you wish to be removed from the PAP (such as the property has been sold, or you just don’t want to be on it any more, etc.) YOU MUST notify the tax office IN WRITING at least fifteen (15) days before the next preauthorized payment is due.
  •  Notification of any changes to your bank account information must be received IN WRITING by the tax office at least fifteen (15) days before the next scheduled withdrawal.
  •  The Municipality reserves the right to cancel this service at any time, providing you are given twenty-one (21) days notice before the next due date.

How To Enroll:

  • Complete and sign the specified Authorization Agreement and attach an unsigned, blank cheque, marked “VOID”.
  • Mail or bring in your Agreement and void cheque to the Tax Department at the address below.
  • You may enroll in the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan at any time during the year, provided that we receive the Authorization Agreement at least fifteen (15) days prior to the next due date and a separate form is completed for each roll number.
