The TIPP program is an easy, convenient and secure way to pre-pay your property tax! By signing up for TIPP, Lethbridge taxpayers can make manageable monthly payments to their property tax account.
Ten equal instalments are automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the first of each month, from August to May, earning a rate of prepayment incentive with no service charge.
If necessary, a payment to balance the account will be automatically withdrawn on the last business day of June.
New applicants are encouraged to apply by July 20 for the August 1 withdrawal. If you begin the program after August 1, your payment amount will be different. Please contact us to calculate your TIPP payments.
You can also download our brochure for more information.
To be eligible for the TIPP program, your current year property tax account (due the last business day of June) must be paid in full.

How do I sign up?
1. Download and complete the TIPP application form.
2. Mail, fax, email or drop off the completed form and bank account information to City Hall.
Once you are enrolled in the program there is no need to reapply every year. The program will continue until you submit a cancellation form.
How do I change my banking information?
In the event you previously enrolled in the TIPP program and your bank account has changed, complete a TIPP application form and tick Revised at the top of the document. Fax, email, drop off or mail the application with your new banking information by the 20th of the month prior to the next TIPP withdrawal.
Complete the TIPP cancellation form and return to the City Tax department by the 20th of the month prior to the next TIPP withdrawal.
Note: A cancellation form is required for each tax account to be removed from the program. If you are a condominium owner with a titled parking stall(s) on TIPP, a cancellation form is required for each account.
If you have sold your property, review your Statement of Adjustments that you signed with your lawyer. Contact your lawyer in the event you have questions about your TIPP credit or property tax balance.
