Edmonton property owners can expect to receive their annual property tax notices in the mail this week, and are being reminded that taxes are due by June 30, 2017.
“There are six convenient ways property owners can make their payments by the June 30 deadline to avoid any late-payment penalties,” says Rod Risling, Branch Manager of Assessment and Taxation. “For those looking to pay in person, please visit the new Edmonton Service Centre at the Edmonton Tower for all tax related payments and inquiries.”
The Edmonton Tower is at 10111 104 Avenue, across from Rogers Place.
This year, a typical single-family home, assessed at $397,000, will pay $3,378 in property taxes. Approximately 70 per cent or $2,385 will pay for municipal programs and services and 30 per cent or $993 will go directly to the Government of Alberta to fund education.
In total, the City will collect around $2 billion in property taxes: $1.5 billion in municipal taxes and $0.5 billion in provincial education taxes.
Tax supported programs include essential services such as police, fire rescue, roadway maintenance and public transit. Funds are also used for amenities such as the river valley - North America’s largest urban park, and City libraries and recreation centres.
Edmonton property owners can pay their taxes in six ways including: through most financial institutions (via phone or online banking), through mortgage companies, in person at the new Customer Service Centre at the Edmonton Tower (10111 104 Avenue), by mail or through the City’s property tax monthly payment plan.
Property owners who don’t receive their City of Edmonton property tax notice by June 5, 2017 should contact 311 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
