(Cochrane, AB) – The Town of Cochrane reminds all Cochrane property owners that the due date for property taxes is June 30. A seven percent penalty on any outstanding 2023 amounts will be charged to accounts on July 1, with further penalties later in the year. Property tax bills cannot be appealed.
- Property tax bills can be paid at most financial institutions, by telephone or personal online banking (under bill payment Cochrane tax or Cochrane Alberta tax for the payee) and by mail.
- In-person payments by Interact, cash or cheque can be made at The Station at Cochrane Crossing (360 Railway St) or RancheHouse (101 RancheHouse Rd).
- Post-dated cheques with the recorded tax roll number and return portion of the tax bill can be postmarked and mailed or dropped at one of the secure, after-hours drop box locations at the RancheHouse (101 RancheHouse Rd) or FCSS office (209 Second Avenue West).
- Due to high payment volumes, please do not wait until June 30 to make your payment. All payments must be received by June 30 to avoid late payment penalties.
Property owners can review their property tax bill for their current balance and payment options. Property owners signed up for the Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) program do not need to submit additional payment – your installments will be updated to reflect your property tax bill.
Property owners who have purchased a property in the last two months are asked to email the taxation department to obtain up-to-date information on their tax accounts, as the Town of Cochrane may not have a record of their title transfer due to processing delays at Alberta Land Titles. Taxes are still due in full by June 30.
