Monthly payment amounts are printed on the interim and final tax bills each year.

PAP plan information
  • Enrollments, cancellations, plan type changes and banking information changes must be received at least 5 business days prior to the withdrawal date.
  • A $25.00 charge will apply for any returned payments (not sufficient funds, account frozen, incorrect banking information provided, etc.). If 2 payments are returned in a year, the plan will be cancelled. Re-enrollment can occur as long as the account is paid to date. 
  • To determine your monthly payment amount, each bill is divided by the number of monthly payments. The payment amount is printed on the tax bill:
    • Interim bill reflects payment amount for February, March, April, May and June
    • Final bill reflects payment amount for July, August, September, October and November
  • The Installment plan amounts are withdrawn in the amount reflected on your interim and final tax bills, on the due dates reflected on the tax bills.
