Property Tax Payment Options

Pre-Authorized Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP)

The Town of Rocky Mountain House offers pre-authorized tax instalment payment plans to help property owners meet their taxation obligations. This program may be a benefit to you. The following are some of the highlights of the plan:

  • Your instalments for January - June will be based on your previous years' taxes divided by 12 equal monthly payments.    
  • When taxes are levied for the current year, your monthly payments will be adjusted for the property taxation notice which is mailed in June.    
  • There will be no penalty levied on unpaid current taxes for those participating in the plan.    
  • On signing an authorization form, your monthly payments will automatically be deducted from your bank account. A void cheque or authorization form from your bank must be included with your tax pre-authorization form.    
  • If you have property tax arrears, you may join TIPP by entering into a Tax Agreement with the Town for monthly repayment, please contact the Property Tax Clerk for details.
  • You may enrol at any time.

If you are interested in participating in the plan, please contact the Tax Clerk at 403-845-2866. You may download the application form here.
