Property Tax Notices for the City of Chestermere are in the mail this week. Annual taxes are due July 31, 2022, unless you are currently enrolled in the TIPPS Program.
Due to increased real estate transactions in the province, Alberta Land Titles is currently three to four months behind processing land title transfers. If you’re new to Chestermere or have purchased a property here after February 2022, the City of Chestermere has most likely NOT received the change of ownership information to generate your Property Tax Notice.
If this applies to you, please get in touch with the City Tax Department and provide proof of ownership with one of the following:
- Statement of Adjustments;
- Mortgage papers; or
- A signed and completed Purchase Agreement.
Residents and property owners are encouraged to sign up for E-Tax Notices. Instead of receiving a paper copy, your Property Tax Notice is delivered straight to your inbox. Sign up here: E-Tax Notices
Another option available to residents and property owners is to sign up for the TIPPS Program. This optional plan allows owners to pay taxes by automatic monthly debit from their bank account. There are no administration fees for TIPP subscribers. Enrollment can be done any time of the year. More information can be found here: Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPPS)
If payment is not received by August 1, a penalty of 7% is applied to any current year’s taxes owing. Any current year taxes remaining unpaid as of September 1 will have a penalty of 1.5% applied monthly. Any prior year’s tax arrears due will have a penalty of 1.5% applied monthly.
