How Can I Pay my Property Taxes?

There are several different ways to make your property tax payments in the Town of Black Diamond.  Please review the list to choose the option best for you.

  • Join TIPP (Tax Installment Payment Program).  This program provides for monthly automatic withdrawals to pay your property taxes without late payment penalties for accounts in good standing.
  • On-line banking with your financial service provider.  You make your own payments through your bank at your discretion.  Please call your bank’s branch for further information or to set up your on-line banking account.
  • Cheques can be mailed to the Town Office, brought into the Town Office during regular business hours or placed in the overnight depository (just left of the Town Office main doors on the upper level). 
  • Cash is accepted at the Town Office during regular office hours. Please do not mail cash or use the overnight depository for cash payments.
  • Interac/Debit cards can be used during regular office hours at the Town Office.  Debit cards are (generally) subject to daily transaction limits.  If you wish to pay the full amount of your property tax in one payment, please contact your bank to determine your daily transaction limit prior to visiting the Town Office.
  • Credit Card payments may be made online, using Option Pay.  All transaction fees applicable to any credit card payments will be the sole responsibility of the cardholder, and will be automatically charged to the cardholder’s account.
  • P.I.T. (Principal Interest Taxes) - you will have arranged for your mortgage company to pay your property taxes each year, and include that amount in your mortgage payments. *Note: If you are paying out your mortgage in the near future, you will need to determine the method that best suits you to handle your property taxes after your mortgage is fully paid. Please check with your mortgage holder to determine your needs if this is the case for you.

If you are not making your payment in person at the office, the Town does not (generally) mail out receipts.  However, if you would like to receive a receipt for your payment, please let us know that when you make your payment.  You can also call the office at 403-933-4348 or email the Tax Clerk and request that a receipt be mailed or emailed to you.
