Pre-Authorized Tax Payment Plan
The S.V. of Sunset Point's Pre-Authorized Tax (PAT)
Payment Plan can help.
A monthly tax payment plan is the smart way to pay your property
Now you can pay your taxes in twelve monthly installments
instead of a single large payment.
Makes your month to month budgeting for expenses easier. Avoids
the embarrassment of missing payments or a penalty charge for late
How it Works
The PAT Plan runs from January to December each year. Your first
four monthly payments will be estimated based on your previous
year's tax levy.
Residents receive their tax notice in May. As PAT Plan
participant, your monthly payments will then be revised for your
Any adjustments required as a result of the annual levy will be
spread over the last eight payments of the year. The revised
payments continue until May of the following year.
Payments may only be made by automatic withdrawal from an
account with CHEQUING privileges at a bank, trust
company, treasury branch, or credit union. The S.V. of Sunset Point
requires your written permission before the withdrawals begin.
There is no charge for this service; however, your normal bank
charges may apply.
