Property Taxes

Please be aware that Alberta Land Titles are currently experiencing a backlog due to a higher than normal increase in real estate transactions submitted for registration. As a result, the Town may not be aware of your recent real estate purchase. If you do not receive your tax notice in the mail, you are still responsible to pay your property taxes by June 30, 2022. For tax information on your newly acquired property, please call 780-939-4361 or email the Tax and Utilities department.

We manage and maintain property tax and assessment information, including the issuance of tax certificates and property searches.

Paying your property taxes

Property taxes are due June 30 of each year. Any unpaid taxes after June 30 are subject to a 7.5% penalty which increases to 9% on December 31. See our Unpaid Property Tax Penalty Bylaw for more information. Please note that we do not accept credit card payments at this time
