Pay your property taxes today - avoid late penalties

June 21, 2018 10:57 AM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

Property owners are reminded the deadline to pay 2018 property tax bills is June 30.

Be sure to pay in full and on time to avoid paying late fees. If a property tax account is not paid in full by June 30, a seven per cent penalty will be applied to the unpaid portion. For example, come July 1, if a $2,000 balance remains on a tax account a penalty of $140 (seven per cent) will be applied.

The tax deadline and penalties do not apply to property owners who pay monthly through The City’s Tax Instalment Plan (TIP).

Payment options

Payments can be made at most financial institutions (including online or telephone banking), in person at City Hall (4914 - 48 Avenue) or by mail which must be postmarked by Canada Post by June 30, to avoid the late penalty. Credit cards cannot be used to pay property tax.

Property owners remitting payment at the bank must allow sufficient time for the bank’s cut-off and processing times to ensure the payment reaches The City of Red Deer before the due date. 

Remember, City Hall is closed on weekends. Those wanting to make payment in person at City Hall must do so by Friday, June 29, 2018, at 4:30 p.m.
