By now you should have received your property assessment and tax notice for 2013. If you have any questions regarding the assessment of your property please do not hesitate to call us at 780-939-4361.

Tax payments are due by June 30, 2013 and may be made in person, by mail to the Town Office, through telephone and Internet banking or through our pre-authorized payment plan. Please note the Town also has a mail drop off box at the west end of St. Germain Place. Also please note that if using mail, payment must be postmarked no later than June 30, 2013 in order to avoid a penalty.

The pre-authorized payment plan offered by the Town allows you to spread your tax payment over 12 months. For example, if your taxes for 2013 are $2,400, you would be required to provide a payment of $1,200 prior to June 30, 2013 and then we would collect 6 payments of $200 each from your bank account on the 16th of each month commencing in July 2013. Payments would continue at this rate in 2014 until your assessment for 2014 is issued, at which time the payments would be adjusted to the new tax assessment. No penalties are assessed to ratepayers utilizing the pre authorized payment plan providing all payments are made on time. Please contact us for details.
