Tax Payment Options

Payment Plan

If you would prefer to pay your taxes by convenient automatic monthly withdrawals from your bank account, you can sign up for the Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP).

To apply for TIPP complete and sign the TIPP Application Form and return it along with a “VOID” cheque to:

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo
Assessment and Taxation Office
3rd Floor - 9909 Franklin Avenue
Fort McMurray, AB  T9H 2K4

Mail

Send a cheque or money order (do not send cash) and enclose the “return portion” of your tax bill. The envelope must be postmarked before midnight, on the due date noted on your tax notice or late payment penalties will be added. Please make cheques payable to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.

At the Bank or Online

Payments may also be made at any Canadian chartered bank, Alberta Treasury Branch, Servus Credit Union or through internet banking using the Tax Roll Number, printed on your bill.

In Person

Payment may be made in person at the following locations:

  • Jubilee Center, 9909 Franklin Avenue
  • Timberlea Landing, 309 Powder Drive
  • Janvier Municipal Office
  • Conklin Municipal Office

Post-Dated Cheques

To avoid last minute lineups, the Municipality will accept cheques that are post-dated up to and including June 28. Payments made by mail must be postmarked no later than the due date noted on your tax notice in order to avoid penalties.

Please make cheques payable to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.

Mortgage Company Payments

The property tax bill will show an abbreviated name of your mortgage company and your mortgage number. If the mortgage company name does not appear on the bill, and you believe you pay P.I.T., please contact your mortgage company immediately.
