Make the initial payment
Make the initial payment shown in the “Initial Payment Due” box on the agreement, by the “Return by” date shown on the TIPP agreement sent to you. The initial payment must be made separately. It will not be automatically withdrawn from your bank account.
When joining the plan for more than one property, the initial payments must be made separately, not as a lump sum payment on one roll number.
TIPP initial payments, like all property tax payments, can be made through banks and financial institutions. If you are paying online, the 9 digit roll number is your account number. Select the payee name closest to “Calgary (City Of) Property Tax” or “Calgary Property Tax.”
Failure to make the initial payment will result in the cancellation of your TIPP participation.

Questions about returning an agreement or initial payments?
Your bank may provide you with a void cheque or a pre-authorized debit payment form (PAD), either online or through your branch. Contact your bank for further information.
Due to the volume of TIPP agreements received each month, we are unable to confirm receipt of an agreement or enrolment with each new participant.
The best way to ensure you are enrolled is to return your signed, completed agreement, void cheque or Pre-authorized Debit form AND initial payment no later than the ‘return by’ date on your customized TIPP agreement. Your first automatic withdrawal will occur on the “start date” quoted on your TIPP agreement.
Contact Property Tax if the monthly instalment is not debited from your bank account on the scheduled start date.
Return the completed agreement, void cheque or pre-authorized debit form (PAD) AND initial payment as soon as possible. We will review the information and advise what must be done to be enrolled on the program.
