TIPPs - Tax Instalment Payment Program
The TIPPs application form is available here to download. Please fill it out, and return it to the Town Office to the attention of the Tax and Utilities Clerk. She will verify the eligibility of the applicant, and confirm the instalment amounts due for the first half of the year. Please call the Town Office at 403-933-4348 and ask to speak with the Tax Clerk if you would like more information, to make sure you are eligible to apply for the TIPPs program, to determine your monthly instalment or to discuss a concern with your current TIPPs account.
From January to June, the instalments made are based on the previous year's property tax amount. When the tax notices are sent out (usually between mid-May and early June) they will show the new instalment amounts to begin on July 1st of the current year, and carrying through to June of the next year.
