TIPP - Terms & Conditions

In order to enrol or continue in the TIPP program, you must understand and maintain your TIPP account in good standing.  The following Terms & Conditions apply, as well as those set out by the Town of Black Diamond TIPP Bylaw.

  1. You authorize the Town and its financial institution(s) to continually debit the stated bank account on the 3rd day of each month to make payments on your property tax account. 
  2. You acknowledge that when current year taxes are unknown, the debited instalments will be estimated on the prior year’s taxes until current year tax information is available for recalculation. 
  3. Your tax account must be at a NIL balance at year-end for you to automatically participate in the TIPP program in the following year. Any credit balance on the tax account remaining at the end of the calendar year will be applied to the following year’s payments. 
  4. This plan will remain in effect until cancelled. You are responsible to advise the Town, in writing, at least 15 days in advance, of any changes required to the next automatic payment (e.g. Payor information, bank account changes, cancellation of the plan, etc.). If there is a change in ownership of the property, you are responsible to notify the Town in writing to cancel the program. 
  5. Any payments that are dishonoured by your bank will incur a fee, which must be paid prior to resuming your participation in the program. 
  6. The Town has the right to cancel your participation in the program, per the Bylaw, if your account is no longer in good standing. 
  7. Monthly payment instalments will be recalculated periodically. You will be notified of calculations that result in changed payments. 
  8. Any correspondence sent by the Town will be directed to the registered owner(s) of the property only. 
  9. By submitting this application to the Town, you are agreeing to be bound by the TIPP Bylaw and the Terms & Conditions of this agreement. 
  10. You have certain recourse rights if any debit does not comply with this agreement.
