(Red Deer, Alberta)

The 2016 Property Tax Notices are in the mail. Taxpayers who do not receive their Tax Notice by Friday, June 3 should contact Revenue & Assessment Services at 403-342-8126. Property tax payments are due by Thursday, June 30, 2016. Property owners are encouraged to pay early to ensure their payment is processed on time and to avoid a seven per cent penalty on July 1.

Tax roll account numbers have changed this year, the updated roll number can be found on the tax notice. Taxpayers are reminded to ensure that the new roll number is used when making payments. The property tax notice also contains other important information such as if a mortgage company is paying the property taxes on the owners behalf, or if the property owner is enrolled in The City’s Tax Instalment Plan (TIP).

If a property owner would like to sign up for the Tax Instalment Plan (TIP), applications will only be accepted until June 15 to sign up for the 2016 tax year. Details are available from the Revenue & Assessment Services department or by visiting the website at www.reddeer.ca/TIP.

The City accepts many forms of payment, including in person at City Hall, mail, electronic banking, and payments made at financial institutions.

“Many property owners choose to pay their taxes using internet banking, telephone banking or in branch banking with their financial institutions,” said Roxane Preedin, Controller-Property Taxation. “Taxpayers who pay their taxes this way will need to check with their financial institutions for cut-off and processing times. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure their payments are processed by their bank by June 30.”
