The City of Lloydminster has issued a reminder to citizens that taxes are due at month’s end.
The deadline for Lloydminster property owners to pay their property taxes is Thursday, June 30. The 2016 property tax notices were mailed by the City of Lloydminster’s Finance Department on Tuesday, May 31, 2016.
Residents who have not yet received their tax bill should contact the City’s Tax Department at 780-875-6184 ext. 2124, or email [email protected]
If the property owner has made arrangements with their financial institution to provide payment, no further action is required.
The following methods of payment may be used for property tax bills:
- Debit Card
- Online Banking
Payment can be made in person at City Hall (4420-50 Ave.) during regular business hours. After-hour payments can be made by submitting a cheque, with the tax roll number included, in the City Hall mail slot.
Property owners can also pay their property taxes at their financial institution of choice, but payment cannot be accepted with a credit card.
After June 30, penalties will be applied to outstanding property taxes. Property owners can view their property tax information online at http://www.lloydminster.ca/finance by selecting ‘Property Taxes’ and ‘Online Property Tax Information Database.’
To view the current balance owing, property owners are required to enter their tax roll number or address.
Fixed, Monthly and Annual payment options available. Property owners can choose one of the following three payment plan options for the 2017 property tax period:
- Fixed Payment: Property owners authorize the City to debit their account by a fixed dollar amount monthly.
- Monthly Payment: Property owners authorize the City to debit their account an amount based on 8.5 per cent of the current year levy.
- Annual Payment: Property owners authorize the City to debit their account the full balance owing on the due date (June 30).
Anyone interested in fixed, monthly, or annual payment options must complete the PAD Plan Agreement, and attach a void cheque, and then return both items in person or by mail to the Finance Department.
Property taxes provide 32 per cent of the City’s annual operating budget, which funds a wide range of public services including water supply/distribution, policing and protective services, street maintenance, waste management and the operation of parks, among others.
