Penalties will apply for any dishonored payments. Payments rendered with any conditions attached will not be accepted. All payments will be applied first to arrears of taxes and secondly to current taxes.

The Town of Taber has passed a bylaw that provides for the imposition of penalties on unpaid taxes as follows:
- 6% of the unpaid current taxes remaining unpaid after June 30 of the current year
- An additional 6% of the unpaid current taxes remaining unpaid after July 31 of the current year
12% of the total amalgamated taxes remaining unpaid after December 31 in the current and in each succeeding year thereafter as long as the taxes remain unpaid.
Effective Date of Payment
The effective date of payment, for payments mailed to the Town of Taber, will be the date of the postmark from Canada Post. If the postmark of Canada Post is absent or illegible, the effective date of payment will be the actual date of receipt by the Town of Taber. The imprint of a postage meter is not acceptable proof of the date of mailing.
