Penalties for late payments

Tax Rate Bylaw 1958-20 outlines a fee schedule for late property tax payments. A property owner’s inability to pay their mandated property tax amount impacts the delivery of municipal services. Late payment penalties will be applied to accounts with an outstanding balance as follows:


  • July 1, 2021 - nine percent (9%) of any unpaid current tax levy
  • October 1, 2021 - six percent (6%) of any unpaid current tax levy
  • January 1, 2022 - fifteen percent (15%) of any unpaid tax balance


Your Payment Options

A number of options are available for paying your property taxes including cash, cheque, Interac, or making a payment at any local financial institutionPlease note that credit cards are not accepted for property tax payments at this time.


Property owners whose accounts are in good standing may apply for the pre-authorized tax payment plan. This plan allows owners to pay their property taxes directly to the City in monthly instalments from January until December without incurring late payment penalties. Payments are automatically withdrawn from your bank account on either the 1st or the 15th of each month.


Please contact the taxation department at Wetaskiwin City Hall at 780.361.4400 for more information about payment options.
