Red Deer property owners pay taxes in nick of time
Four property owners paid their taxes just in the nick of time.
The City of Red Deer planned to hold a land sale on Dec. 14 for these land owners who hadn’t paid their taxes in recent years.
A city official with the Property Taxation Department reported on Friday that the land sale didn’t take place.
In March 2011, those properties and a number of others would have been put on the city’s taxation notification listing.
The auction is normally scheduled around this time of year. But as in years past, the land sale didn’t have to take place because the taxes were paid.
The sale is regulated according to the Municipal Government Act.
