On May 7, 2019 Council passed Bylaw 866 which sets the taxation rates for 2019.
Municipalities are required by legislation to bill and collect Education and Seniors Foundation taxes on behalf of the Province of Alberta. The Town of Redwater has no control over establishing these tax rates and the taxes collected simply flow through the Town to the Province. Click here for information on the Education Property Tax.
All residential and non-residential property owners pay education and seniors foundation taxes, including people without children and senior citizens. Eligible senior citizens may apply for the Alberta Seniors Benefit program, which is intended to assist with the payment of property taxes.
Questions related to the Alberta Senior's Benefit program and eligibility should be directed to the Government of Alberta at 1-877-644-9992. Questions regarding Provincial Education Property Taxes should be directed to the Alberta Education Property Tax information line at (780) 422-7125.
The 2019 Combined Assessment and Tax Notice were mailed on May 23, 2019.
Taxes are due June 30, 2019. A 10% penalty for late payment will be applied on July 1, 2019.
If you intend to file an assessment complaint, the deadline for filing is July 30, 2019; however, your taxes are still due and must be paid by June 30, 2019 to avoid a penalty.
