Property Tax Notices are in the mail 


  • May. 30, 2012 3:07 p.m.

This year’s Property Tax Notices are in the mail, and property owners are encouraged to pay early to ensure their payment is processed on time and avoid late penalties. Property owners should receive their property tax bill within the next week. Property tax payments are due on or before June 29.

Those who choose to pay property taxes in one lump sum can do so by coming in person to the City Hall cashiers or dropping payment off in an envelope in the City Hall night depository located on the east side of the building. The last day for in person payments at City Hall is June 29 by 4:30 p.m.

“Many property owners choose to pay their taxes using internet banking, telephone banking or in branch banking with their financial institutions, said Deb Stott, controller of property taxation with the City. “Taxpayers who pay their taxes this way need to remember that due dates are critical and it is their responsibility to ensure their payments are processed on time by their bank.”

The June 29 deadline does not apply to property owners who are enrolled in the City’s Tax Instalment Plan (TIP) as of June 15. Property owners can join TIP by filling out an application. Details are available from the Revenue & Assessment Services department or by visiting the website at www.reddeer.ca/tax.

Property owners who miss the payment deadline will have to pay a 6% penalty on the outstanding property taxes owing.

“Many property owners have their mortgage company pay their property taxes as part of their mortgage agreement. We recommend these individuals review their tax notice to make sure the mortgage company responsible to make the payment is identified correctly. If this information is inaccurate, it is the property owner’s responsibility to contact the mortgage company and have it corrected,” said Stott.

Property owners who do not receive their 2012 Property Tax Notice by June 8 should contact Revenue & Assessment Services at 403-342-8126 or stop by Revenue & Assessment Services, which is located on the fourth floor of City Hall at 4914 48 Avenue. More information is available online at www.reddeer.ca/tax.
