Municipality Reminds Residents of Upcoming Property Tax Penalty Deadline

(Fort McMurray, AB – December 15, 2016) – To avoid late payment penalties, property owners are reminded to pay their property taxes in full by the Dec. 31, 2016 deadline.

If you haven’t received your property tax notice, please update your mailing address on our website as soon as possible. 

Due to the May wildfires, Council extended the property tax deadline to Aug. 31, 2016 and voted to delay the first penalty for non-payment of current property taxes to Jan 1, 2017. 

In August, Council approved a wildfire tax relief program, cancelling a portion of municipal tax for residential properties. Tax relief amounts have been applied to the applicable property tax accounts and letters were sent to property owners.
