Monthly Pre-Authorized Debit Program

Mountain View County offers a Property Tax Installment Payment Plan that enables you to pay your taxes monthly, instead of in one annual payment. For the first six months of each year, your monthly installment is 1/12th of the previous year’s total tax levy. The monthly installment amount for the last 6 months of the year is adjusted in July and is based on the current year’s tax levy.

If you join the plan on any date after January 31st a one-time catch-up payment will be calculated equal to the amount that would have been paid had, you participated in the plan from January 1st.  Mountain View County’s withdrawal date for the monthly payment plan is the last banking day of each month.

There is an annual cut off date of August 8th for signing up for the monthly payment plan, which is stated on your yearly Assessment/ Tax Notice.

For more details on how the monthly payment plan works refer to the Tax Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Application or contact the County Tax Department at 403-335-3311 extension 156. To sign up you will need to complete the Tax Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Application form and include a void cheque. Your tax notice will show your monthly payment amounts.
