1. TERM OF PROGRAM
Recipient agrees to establish residency within the limits of the City of Tulsa, Oklahoma no later than (“Start Date”). The term of the Program is twelve (12) consecutive months from Start Date (“Program Term”).

Subject to Recipient’s full compliance with the terms of this Agreement, so long as Recipient is not in violation of the terms of this Agreement, Tulsa Remote agrees to pay to Recipient up to a total of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) (the “Program Incentive”) for the Program Term, to be paid in one of the two formats below and/or a prorated combination of the formats, if applicable.
A. THE "Monthly Incentive" Option
Under the Monthly Incentive Option, the Program Incentive consists of, as may be applicable, a Relocation Incentive, a Monthly Incentive, and a Completion Incentive.
i. Relocation Incentive. Upon (a) relocation from residency out of the State of Oklahoma to a residence within the Tulsa city limits (“Recipient Occupied Personal Residence”), and upon (b) Recipient providing Tulsa Remote with sufficient residency documentation of same and pursuant to Section 4, Recipient will receive two-thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500) (“Relocation Incentive").
ii. Monthly Incentives. Monthly incentives of five hundred dollars ($500) for twelve (12) consecutive months for living in a Recipient Occupied Personal Residence within the City of Tulsa and abiding by the terms and conditions of Agreement each month (each a “Monthly Incentive").
iii. Completion Incentive. Upon completion of living in a Recipient Occupied Personal Residence within the city of Tulsa and abiding by the terms and conditions of Agreement for twelve (12) consecutive months, Recipient will receive one thousand five hundred dollars ($1,500) (“Completion Incentive").
iv. Payment Procedure. Subject to adherence to all Program requirements and the terms and conditions of this Agreement, all payments will be made to Recipient by direct deposit in a bank account in Recipient’s name. Subject to individual facts and circumstances, which may call for an accommodation as determined by Tulsa Remote, use of other payment methods, including payment mailed to post office boxes, will not be permitted.
B. THE "Homeownership Incentive" Option
The Homeownership Initiative Option may accelerate the payment of the Program Incentive. A Recipient may select the Homeownership Initiative Option from the beginning of their acceptance into the Program. Alternatively, a Recipient who chooses to begin with the Monthly Incentive Option may apply for and be selected to transition to the Homeownership Initiative Option at any time, to receive the remainder of the unpaid Program Incentive in one lump sum ("Completion Incentive"), if the Recipient complies with the requirements below and in this Agreement.
i. "Recipient Owned & Occupied Personal Residence" is a Recipient Occupied Personal Residence that Recipient purchases in connection with the Program to be Recipient’s primary residence, and in which Recipient is an owner-occupant for at least the remainder of the Program Term. Properties purchased as and/or used as vacation or second homes, as part-time homes, or for the benefit of another and/or for commercial purposes (such as for rental) are excluded. Tulsa Remote may require any reasonable or customary proofs, to Tulsa Remote’s sole satisfaction, of the purchase of a Recipient Owned & Occupied Personal Residence, including but not limited to: filed-stamped and certified deeds, notes, mortgages, tax records, utility bills, or any similar documents in Recipient’s name.
ii. If, as determined solely by Tulsa Remote, each of the following occur:
a) the Recipient promises (represents and warrants) that the Recipient has purchased in connection with the Program and will live in a Recipient Owned & Occupied Personal Residence for the remainder of the Program Term;
b) the Recipient promises (represents and warrants) to receive no income from the Recipient Owned & Occupied Personal Residence for the Program Term (unless as explicitly excepted in Paragraph 7.C(iii) for Remote Work as represented);
c) the Recipient provides proof, to the satisfaction of Tulsa Remote, of Recipient’s purchase of a Recipient Owned & Occupied Personal Residence in the City of Tulsa in connection with and for the remainder of the Program Term, as well as any other documentation that may be required by Tulsa Remote;
d) the Recipient is explicitly named as a title-holder to the Recipient Owned & Occupied Personal Residence; and
e) the Recipient attends orientation;
then Tulsa Remote shall pay the Homeownership Initiative to the Recipient in the course of Tulsa Remote’s regular disbursement schedule.
iii. In the event of a breach of the promises (representations and warranties) set forth in this Section 3(B), Tulsa Remote reserves the right to terminate the Agreement and seek reimbursement of all Program Incentives and its attorneys’ fees and costs as set out in Sections 8 and 11.
C. Program Incentive Cap
In no event shall any combination of Program Incentives exceed a total of ten thousand dollars ($10,000).
D. Taxes Not Withheld
Any incentive pursuant to the Program is not a grant, it is income. Tulsa Remote will not withhold taxes of any kind from Recipient’s Program Incentive, but will provide an IRS Form 1099. It is the responsibility of Recipient to report Program Incentive income to the appropriate state and federal tax authorities and to pay any taxes due on such income. The Participant agrees to indemnify and defend Tulsa Remote for any tax issues associated with payment of Program Incentives.

If, for any reason, Recipient is unable to maintain residency in Recipient Occupied Personal Residence in the City of Tulsa and/or Remote Working status during the Program Term, then Tulsa Remote may, in its sole and exclusive discretion: (i) withhold or prorate some or all Program Incentive; or (ii) terminate Recipient from the Program in which case Section 8 (Termination) shall apply.
