2016 property taxes due Thursday

June 27, 2016 10:06 AM
(Red Deer, Alberta)

Don’t forget to pay your property taxes by Thursday to avoid penalties. Thursday, June 30 is the deadline to pay 2016 City of Red Deer property taxes.

Tax payments can be made by coming in-person to the City Hall cashiers. The deadline for in-person payments at City Hall is Thursday, June 30 by 4:30 p.m.

While payments can typically be sent by mail, property owners who have not yet mailed their property tax payments are encouraged to use another payment option as a strike or lockout of the Canada Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is expected in early July.

Payments that are postmarked by Canada Post by June 30, 2016 will be accepted; however, if you mailed your payment after June 17, you may want to consider cancelling and resubmitting your payment in another way as delivery is not guaranteed.

If The City does not receive payment on or before the deadline, the property owner will have to pay a seven per cent penalty on the outstanding property taxes owing. The penalty is calculated in a lump sum adjustment. For example, if $2,000 is left unpaid after the due date, a penalty of seven per cent or $140 would be applied to the account. No penalties will be waived despite the expected mailing interruption.
