Points to Remember

  1. Include the remittance portion of your tax notice with all in-person or mailed payments.
  2. Make cheques payable to the City of Edmonton.
  3. If paying by debit card, ensure the amount of your taxes does not exceed your debit card limit.
  4. If paying by ATM, keep your receipt as proof of the date and time of payment.
  5. The City of Edmonton does not accept credit cards, credit card cheques or wire payments directly as a method of paying property taxes.

When paying by cheque, ensure it is signed, dated and completed accurately (body and figures match). The City is not responsible for errors and omissions.

If the City cannot process your payment due to an error on the cheque or insufficient funds, late-payment penalties and service charges may apply to your account.
