Council provides new tax payment option for those impacted by COVID-19

For residents who have been financially impacted by COVID-19, Chestermere City Council has approved a new tax repayment option.

“While taxes are necessary to ensure that the City can keep providing services, we are pleased to provide a variety of payment options to fit individual needs during this pandemic,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers.

Taxes, paid in a lump sum, were due on September 1. 

For those who missed the tax deadline, or for those who requested a deferral of monthly tax payments, the City is providing the following options:

1. Typical TIPP Plan: Pay off your 2020 balance by December 31

This will result in higher monthly payments between now and December but normal payments in 2021. This would take the balance of taxes owing and average it over the remaining months of the year. In January, TIPP payments will be re-adjusted for 2021. Payments under this plan come out on the 15th of every month and would be eligible to have 2020 penalties and interest waived.

To register for this plan, email tipp@chestermere.ca with your contact information. 

2. COVID TIPP Plan: Combine and Spread 2020 & 2021 Taxes

The second TIPP plan option would take the 2020 balance owing plus an estimate of 2021 taxes and then average this total amount over the number of months remaining until the end of 2021. This provides the opportunity to spread the taxes over a period of time ranging from 10 to 16 months. Payments under this plan come out on the 22nd of every month and would be eligible to have 2020 penalties and interest waived.

To register for this plan, email covid.tipp@chestermere.ca with your contact information.

3. Customized Payment Plan 

If neither of the above options are feasible for a family, the City can arrange a customized payment plan, but it will be subject to penalties and late fines.

To register for this plan, email taxes@chestermere.ca with your contact information. 

Note: For those who paid on September 1 or who pay monthly and did not request a deferral, 2020 taxes will be automatically adjusted on September 15 and no action is required. For more information about Chestermere’s municipal taxes, visit chestermere.ca/taxes.
