Effective date of payment
Property tax payments can be made through most chartered banks, trust companies, credit unions, and Alberta Treasury Branches. Know your bank's policies regarding the effective date of payment. It’s important to pay at least three business days prior to the property tax payment due date to meet the payment deadline and avoid a late payment penalty. Please keep in mind that most bank transactions are based on Eastern Standard Time.
Step 1: Add Calgary Property Tax as a payee
Before making payment at an ATM add Calgary Property Tax as a payee and register your current roll number online, by phone or in person at a branch.
Add Calgary Property Tax payee to your bank account’s bill payment profile: Search keywords: “Calgary property tax” and select the payee name closest to “Calgary (City of) Property Tax” or “Calgary Property Tax.”
Can’t find Calgary property tax as a payee or are unsure which payee to select?
Contact your bank for more information.
Step 2: Add account number
The account number is the 9-digit roll number on your property tax bill entered with no spaces or dashes. More than one property tax bill? Register each roll number separately and make payment on each tax bill separately.
Roll number is the account number
Make sure the Calgary property tax account number registered in your bank’s bill payment profile matches the 9-digit property tax roll number shown on your most recent tax bill or statement.

Apply payment to the correct property - check your roll number
The property tax roll number is linked to the property NOT the owner.
When you sell a property, that property’s tax roll number does not follow you to your next property.
Your new property will have its own roll number, which appears on your bill.
You must register your new property’s 9-digit roll number as the “account number” before making payment. Not changing the roll number registered with your bank will result in your payment being applied to your previous property, not your current bill.
Step 3: Make payment
Make your property tax payment at an ATM following your bank’s instructions. Keep your receipt as proof of the date and time of payment.
