If you cancel your Business Tax Instalment Payment Plan (BTIPP) participation, all unpaid business taxes are due and subject to penalties in accordance with the Business Tax Bylaw. To request the balance owing, contact Business Tax.
Written notification is required no later than the 22nd of the month prior to the next scheduled withdrawal to cancel your BTIPP participation for any reason including selling or closing your business. This is to ensure your bank account is not debited for the next instalment. Cancellation requests received after the 22nd of the month will be processed after the upcoming withdrawal.
If you have missed the 22nd of the month deadline for cancellation, your bank account will be debited for the next instalment.
