About Your Taxes

In Alberta communities, residents pay taxes for municipal services (i.e. roads, libraries, policing, etc.) based on the value of their property. 

How Your Taxes are Calculated:

The Tax Rate Bylaw is passed each year in May following the budget and the tax rate is set. 

The tax rate is the City's tax requirement divided by the total assessed value in the community. To determine each property's fair share, the assessed value of a property is multiplied by that year's Tax Rate (Individual property taxes = Property's Assessed Value x Tax Rate.)

Example: $478,238 (property assessment) x 5.379672 (municipal tax rate) ÷ 1000 = $2,573 annual municipal taxes. 

Please note this is not inclusive of school or WID taxes (rates below).
