How to pay your taxes

The current year’s taxes are due on November 30th.  If the 30th is on a Saturday or Sunday, the first working day of December is the deadline date.

You can pay your yearly taxes 5 ways:

  1. Come in to the M.D. Administration office and pay by cash, cheque or debit card.
  2. Online through your bank.  Search for the Municipal District of Wainwright and use your Roll number/owner number as the account number.  If you have multiple roll numbers you may use your owner number.
  3. Mail your cheque to the M.D.  All cheques must be post-marked on or before the 30th of November to avoid late penalty.
  4. Use PaySimply (Information below)
  5. Sign up for Tax Auto Pay (Information below) to have your account debited automatically every month. Please inquire with the M.D. on how to set this up
