Tax Email Scam

September 12, 2019

It has come to our attention that a scam email impersonating Foothills County is demanding immediate tax payment via e-transfer.

Foothills County does not request or accept e-transfers as a form of payment for taxes.

If you think you have been the victim of a fraud or scam, report the incident to the RCMP.
