The Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA) has learned that a news article reported that the RMA is looking to “name and shame” oil and gas companies that have outstanding property taxes. This quote has been taken out of context as the RMA is neither in the position to nor interested in publicly shaming companies, regardless of their financial situation.
As has been shared publicly by the RMA repeatedly, the association is looking for opportunities to work with all parties involved – member municipalities, the oil and gas industry, individual companies, and the provincial government – to find mutually beneficial solutions to the challenging economic situation Alberta is facing.
To learn more about the RMA’s position on the current situation, please see the full release Rural municipalities continue to struggle as unpaid tax amounts owed by oil and gas companies increase
