Land Title Delays

Property tax bills mailed in late May 2022 might not reflect recent ownership and mailing address changes due to delays at the Province of Alberta Land Titles Office. If you have not contacted the Town to inform them of the purchase of your new property, you will not receive a tax notice. You will get a tax notice if you sold your home and are still on the land title.

The Town is not responsible for delays. Non-receipt of your property tax bill does not exempt you from late payment penalties. To avoid late payment penalties, ensure your property tax is paid on or before the June 30 due date.

Property owners who have not received their property tax bill can fill out a form on the following webpage: highriver.ca/moving-forms or email corporateservices@highriver.ca.
