Property Tax Installment Payment Plan

By entering into a Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) agreement with Saddle Hills County, eligible ratepayers may have their annual property tax amount divided into twelve equal payments to be then automatically withdrawn from their chequing account on the first of each month over the tax year. Fill out the TIPP Application Form to see if you are eligible to join the program.

How does TIPP work?

TIPP is active from January to December for the current tax year with the first payment being January 1. Though an applicant may enroll at any time for the current tax year, they will need to submit an initial lump sum payment representing the missed monthly payments between January 1 and their agreement's start date.

The first six months of payments (January 1 to June 1) are calculated based on the previous year's tax levy amount. Any increase or decrease to the actual levy amount for the current tax year will adjust the last six payments of the year to ensure a zero balance on the last payment (December). Members will be notified by email on or before June 1 of the new installment amount.

How to join TIPP?

1. Discover if you qualify: You may submit a TIPP Application Form to see if you qualify for enrollment in TIPP and discover what your estimated payment amount would be. After review and approval the tax clerk will respond to your application with a customised TIPP agreement. You may also come into the County Office or request some information over the phone.

2. Review your agreement: The tax clerk will review the terms and conditions of your individual agreement with you.

3. Sign the Agreements: Upon signing you must be prepared to provide a void cheque or direct withdrawal form from your financial institution and make any initial payment separate from your monthly payment.

How to cancel your TIPP?

If you would like to cancel your Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP), notice is required no less than ten (10) business days before the next expected payment date. You can use the TIPP Application Form to cancel your TIPP payments as well. If your cancellation notice is given within the ten days of the next expected payment date your bank account will be debited for the next payment and the cancellation will be processed after.

Notice of cancelation is required to cancel your enrollment in a TIPP agreement for any reason, including selling your property.
