What is property taxation?
A system of taxation that requires lessees, owners or occupiers of land and buildings to pay an amount of money based on the value of their land and buildings. Everyone who owns or occupies property, including individuals, businesses and industry pays property tax.
Your property is taxed each year. The annual amount is the principal. If you do not pay your property tax in full, you will be charged interest on the outstanding amount. This interest is added to the total amount you owe (arrears).
Property Tax Arrears:
The PROPERTY ASSESSMENT AND TAXATION ACT states a taxing authority must, each year, prepare a tax arrears list.

The Town of Norman Wells offers the assessed owner the option of entering into an agreement to pay, on an instalment basis to all who are struggling to pay their property taxes in one payment.
