Property Tax & Property Assessment

Please note: Property Taxes for 2021 were due for payment on June 30th.

These are now overdue and penalties now apply.

Property taxes raise revenue to fund and maintain Town services, facilities, and infrastructure.

The annual Taxation Notice (invoice) covers the period from January 1st through to December 31st each year.

Combined Taxation and Property Assessment Notices are mailed to property owners each year in mid-May. 

Revenues from Property Tax payments fund the Town's Operating and Capital Budget (to provide for Town services). 

Council sets the property tax rates and publishes these each year in the Taxation Rate Bylaw.

The property tax rate forms the base from which the total amount of tax a property owner must pay, is determined.

A part of the total property tax collected by the Town is requisitioned by the Alberta Government for the School Foundation Fund.
