LETHBRIDGE, AB – Just a couple days left until your property taxes are due, but those who’ve been impacted financially by COVID-19 have no need to worry yet.
Lethbridge City Council approved changes earlier this year to the 2021 tax penalties meaning that any outstanding balances won’t be penalized until the fall. On Oct. 1, a three-percent penalty will apply, four-percent on Nov. 1 and five-percent on Dec. 1.
You’re still encouraged to pay all or part of your property taxes by June 30, though.
You can pay electronically through your online banking, cheques and money orders can be left in the drop box at City Hall and cash or debit transactions are accepted by cashiers on the main floor at City Hall.
If you’ve recently purchased property or you haven’t received your 2021 tax notice yet, you can call 311 to request a copy.
