Methods of Payment

The Town of Cochrane offers a variety of payment methods for property taxes.

Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP)

This option, available to home and business owners, offers an opportunity to build your tax payments into a budget plan. An automatic debit will be made from a personal account on the first working day of each month. When you are a participant in the payment plan, you are not required to make an annual payment as your taxes are paid by monthly installments. Your installments will be adjusted on an annual basis to reflect any tax changes for the current year.

Financial Institutions

Payments can be made at most financial institutions. Payments cannot be made through automated banking machines.

Online and Telephone Banking

Available at most financial institutions. Please use your roll number for the account number. 

Drop Box Payments

With this option, payments can be made at any time. There are two drop box locations for your convenience:
  • FCSS Office
    209 Second Ave W
    Cochrane, AB
  • Cochrane RancheHouse
    101 RancheHouse Road
    Cochrane, AB

In Person

Visit the Town administration office at the Cochrane RancheHouse, 101 RancheHouse Road, between 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday and pay by:
  • Interac: please bring your property tax bill
  • Cheque: we accept cheques post-dated on or before the due date indicated on the tax bill.


IMPORTANT NOTE: there is the possibility of a Canada Post labour disruption beginning July 2 and with it, a real possibility that any mailed property tax payments may be delayed and result in late-payment penalties. In order to ensure your property tax payment reaches the Town of Cochrane before the June 30 deadline, please use one of the payment methods above.

Mailed payments (cheques or money orders only) can be sent  to:
Town of Cochrane
101 RancheHouse Road
Cochrane, AB T4C 2K8

Record your tax roll number on your cheque and include the return portion of the tax bill. Post-dated cheques must be dated on or before the due date of June 30, 2013. The envelope must be post-marked by Canada Post on or before the due date in order to avoid the late payment penalty.

If you have further questions, contact taxes at 403-851-2288 or 403-851-2522.
