Property Tax Reminder 2019

It's just about that time! Property Taxes are due by August 31st, 2019 at 4:30pm. The Town of Drumheller allows post dated cheques for the payment of property taxes. Another way to pay your property taxes is to enroll in our monthly installment plan. This allows the Town to automatically withdraw the payment from your bank account each month, avoiding penalties in September and November. Please keep in mind, to enroll in the monthly installment plan, any months that have elapsed must be paid prior to enrollment, for example, if your property taxes are $1,200.00 for the year your monthly installment payment would be $100.00 ($1200.00/12= $100.00). If the enrollment is to begin in August, a payment of $700.00 is required to cover the months of January to July. Enrollment must be completed no later that the 20th of each month.

If your preferred method of payment is thru online or telephone banking, please keep in mind that process turn around times for such payments can take up to four business days.

If property taxes aren't paid by August 31st, a 5% penalty will be levied on September 1st and another 5% penalty on November 1st. All arrears are subject to a monthly penalty of 0.75% or 9.00% per annum, calculated on the first day of each month.
