Paying Your Taxes

Brazeau County offers several ways for residents to pay their property taxes. Taxation and Assessment notices are mailed out mid-April each year. Property taxes are due June 30. It is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure their taxes are paid. Late payments will be subject to a penalty fee.

Property owners can pay their taxes at the Brazeau County Office during regular business hours of Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cash, debit and cheques are accepted as payment. Please make sure if paying by debit, that your debit card does not have a transaction limit.

Taxes can also be paid at your local bank. Please make sure to bring your tax notice with you, if you are paying in person. Taxes can also be paid using online or telephone banking if you have those services set up through your bank.

Payments are also accepted by cheque through the mail. Please send mail payments to:

Brazeau County
Box 77
Drayton Valley, AB  T7A 1R1

Please note, if you are paying by cheque here are some helpful reminders to ensure there is no delay in processing:

  • Make sure the date is correct.
  • Check the body and figures to make sure they match.
  • Make sure it is signed.

Property owners may also sign up for Brazeau County’s monthly Tax Instalment Payment Plan.

Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP)

For those who prefer to budget throughout the year, Brazeau County offers the Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP). The plan allows property owners to pay their taxes in monthly instalments instead of a single payment each year. Paying monthly instalments breaks property taxes into smaller amounts, which can be easier to budget for some individuals and families.  Payments are withdrawn from the identified bank account on the last business day of the month.  

The only requirements for joining the program are that you have chequing or saving privileges at a financial institution (bank, trust company, treasury branch or credit union), and that you do not currently pay your taxes through a mortgage company Principle, Interest and Taxes (PIT) program. 

Application forms are available at the Brazeau County office, or you can download the application form here.
