Lac La Biche County Council approved the Tax Rate Bylaw on May 3, 2022. Council made the decision to keep tax rates for all classes the same as they were in 2020 and 2021.
The 2022 Property Assessment and Tax Notices were mailed to property owners in Lac La Biche County on May 20, 2022. The deadline to pay property taxes is June 30 of each year. 2022 Property taxes are for the period from January 1 to December 31 annually.
Due to processing delays at Alberta Land Titles office, recent ownership and mailing address changes will not be reflected on property assessment and tax notices mailed on May 20, 2022.
Lac La Biche County is not responsible for delays. Non-receipt of your property tax bill does not exempt you from paying your bill by the due date or late payment penalties. Lac La Biche County recommends that current and new property owners who have not received their property tax bill by the first week of June contact the tax clerk at (780) 623-1747 or email@example.com .
