Payments are due by June 28, 2019. Pay early to ensure payments are processed on time to avoid a seven per cent penalty on July 1. Taxpayers who do not receive their Tax Notice by Friday, June 7, 2019 should contact Revenue & Assessment Services at 403-342-8126.

Even though property tax dollars are collected in Red Deer, it doesn't all stay here. Under provincial legislation, The City must collect property taxes on behalf of Alberta Education and Bridges Community Living (formerly Piper Creek Foundation) to pay for education and affordable seniors housing. The tax rate has been set for 2019, refer to the Property Tax Q&A Backgrounder 2018 (pdf) for more information.
