Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP)
About the PlanThrough passing of Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP) By-Law 3-2019, the County of Barrhead now offers the TIP Plan for County property owners. The by-law enables taxpayers to equal monthly instalment payments at no additional cost and without penalty as long as the TIPP remains in good standing.
Benefits & How It Works:
- Taxpayers can sign up at any time
- No penalties shall be imposed with respect to the outstanding balance of the taxes for the current year as long as the Tax Instalment Plan (TIPP) remains in good standing.
- Monthly payments calculated on current or estimate taxes divided by the number of months remaining on the calendar year.
- Payments are adjusted once current year tax levy is determined to ensure a zero balance by December 31 of that year.
- Taxpayers in arrears are able to register for the plan and remain on the plan as long as their TIPP remains in good standing.
- Those who are subdividing, must have taxes paid in full; meaning, taxpayers in the subdivision process would be required to cancel the TIPP program, pay any outstanding amount in full, and then re-register for TIPP.
Payments can be made by:
- Automatic Withdrawals

- the name and mailing address of an assessed person or taxpayer
- an assessment amount
- an assessment class
- an assessment sub-class
- the type of property

First, if you believe your property assessment is inaccurate, please contact the County Assessor at 780-674-3331. If you and the assessor cannot come to an agreement, you may proceed by filing a formal complaint on the prescribed form to the Clerk of the Assessment Review Board. The Assessment Review Board has the authority to review your assessment and direct the Assessor.
An assessment complaint must be filed using the Government of Alberta "Assessment Review Board Complaint Form” - number LGS1402. Alternatively, if you intend to have an agent submit a complaint on your behalf, it must be authorized in writing on the Government of Alberta "Assessment Complaints Agent Authorization"
It is important to complete all fields on the complaint form that are relevant to your property. This will help the assessment review board clerk schedule the appropriate amount of time for your hearing to allow the board members to familiarize themselves with your case prior to the hearing.
The Government of Alberta has published a downloadable guide to "Filing a Property Assessment Complaint and Preparing for Your Hearing".
