Paying Property Taxes

Property taxes are due on the last business day of June to avoid late payment penalties. Payment methods include:

Lethbridge taxpayers can opt for TIPP, making 10 equal monthly payments automatically withdrawn from their bank account on the first day of the month from August to May, earning a prepayment incentive with no service charge.

To be eligible, your current year property tax (due on the last business day of June) must be paid in full.

Visit our TIPP page for more information about the program.

Save money by paying a lump sum up to the last business day of February, receiving a discount on property taxes. The prorated discount will be paid on the equivalent of the previous year's taxes and will be applied to your property tax account.

The rate changes yearly so please check local medial advertising from mid-December to the end of February or call 311 for the current rate.

Send a cheque or money order payable to the City of Lethbridge to:
