Land titles: tax bills and assessment notices
It is the property owner's responsibility to keep the Land Titles record accurate.
The City of Medicine Hat's source of property ownership and mailing address information for assessment notices and tax bills is a property's Certificate of Title as registered with the Province of Alberta Land Titles Office.
Under the Municipal Government Act Section 337, once mailed, a tax bill is considered to have been received after seven days. Non-receipt of your property tax bill does not exempt you from late payment penalties.
