Changes to pre-authorized monthly tax payments

Due to software changes, pre-authorized monthly tax payments for those currently enrolled in the Tax Installment Payment Plan may have changed, effective Jan. 1, 2018.

Software changes now require Leduc County to adjust installment amounts twice annually, in both January and June. Previously, tax installment amounts were adjusted once annually in June. This change will more evenly distribute the taxes owed throughout the year.

Installments for January to May will now be based on the 2017 tax rate and 2017 assessment value of the property. Previous installments were based on the 2017 tax rate and 2016 assessment value of the property.

The monthly installment will be adjusted again in June to reflect changes to the tax rate, which is set by Leduc County council in May. Enrollees will receive a tax notice in May detailing the adjusted monthly installment amount for the remainder of the year; this adjusted amount will automatically be processed on the first of the month from June to December.

In the future, Leduc County will notify all Tax Installment Payment Plan members of changes to their monthly installments in advance of the payments being processed. Leduc County apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Leduc County's Finance department at 780-955-3555.
