I think you advise them in writing at least 90 days before the increase is due to come into effect. Simple letter advising if this and saying all other terms remain the same...keep a record of when you advised and a copy of the letter. ( Think that's it )

I promise not to cut your taxes but I won't raise them either.

I don't know what your relationship is with them, but sometimes it makes sense to send it via registered mail, so that they have to sign for it and you have a receipt of them picking up the mail. There are stories of "I never got the letter" even though you handed it to them.
