The monthly withdrawal amount for your repayment will be calculated once your application is reviewed. The amount will be based on an estimate of the full 2021 tax year levy, plus the balance outstanding from  previous billings, plus any penalty/interest charged (if applicable).  This combined figure is divided by the number of months chosen by the ratepayer,  ending December 15, 2021.

As the 2021 tax levy may be estimated at the time of enrollment, the final monthly withdrawal amount in December will be adjusted to account for either rounding and/or adjustment of the estimate to actual.
