Monthly Tax Payment Plan (MTPP)

Sign up for pre-authorized payments.

Through your Mortgage

If you pay property taxes to a mortgage company, your mortgage company submits the payment to the Town on your behalf. 

The Town sends you the original property tax notice for your records. The name of the mortgage company being billed appears on your tax notice. Mortgage companies submit payments by June 30. 

Bank

You can pay your property taxes in a lump sum through your financial institution. 

In-person 

Before making a payment in person at your bank, confirm that your bank accepts "in-person paper payments" using the remittance stub of your property tax notice

Some financial institutions will process payments at a teller only if their clients have been set up for online banking.

Online

Payment can be made through your online banking. You need to add us as a payee; the payee name will be "Town of Olds – Taxes". Your Tax Roll Number is your account number. Remember to allow several days for processing the payment to avoid late fees.

When making a payment online, confirmation from your bank is your receipt. No further receipt is issued by the Town of Olds.

The tax roll number is unique to each property. If you have recently moved, the tax roll number will be different than on your previous property.

Should you own multiple properties, payments made through internet banking must be designated to each tax roll number to ensure they are applied to correct account.

By Mail

If you wish to pay your property taxes by mail, send a cheque or money order and the remittance portion of your tax notice to the following address:

Town of Olds
4512 46 Street
Olds, AB T4H 1R5

When sending your payment by mail, allow ample time for the payment to arrive prior to June 30. The envelope must be post-marked by Canada Post by the due date to avoid late-payment penalties. The Town is not responsible if payments are not received.

In Person

You can pay taxes in person by cheque, money order, debit or cash at:

Town of Olds, Municipal Office
4512 46 Street
8:30am – 4:30pm
