If a title transfer occurs in May or early June, the City will mail a tax notice to the new owner at the end of May or middle of June. If this notice has not arrived by June 22, call 311.
If it’s been more than 10 business days and your cheque is still not cashed, you may wish to place a stop payment on this cheque through your bank. You will have to send the City a replacement cheque to cover the missing payment.
Information about payments received after May 1 does not meet the “printing deadline date” and will not be reflected in the balance shown on your tax notice.
Mortgage companies submit their tax payments by the June 30th deadline. It can take up to 15 business days for their payment to show up on your tax account.
Contact your lender to confirm the payment is being made on your behalf or call 311 after the third week of July to confirm the payment has been applied to your account.
Taxes and Assessment
If you have filed a formal complaint against your assessment, you still must pay the property taxes by the due date to avoid late-payment penalties.
If a decision on your complaint results in a lower tax amount, the City will credit your account and send you a statement.
Your property assessment notice gives you an estimate of property taxes to help you budget for the upcoming property tax bill.
Your property tax notice is the official property tax bill. The amount stated on your tax notice is generated after City Council gives final approval of municipal taxes and after the Government of Alberta confirms the amount of provincial education taxes the City of Edmonton is required to collect.
