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. A city will set a budget based on how much revenue is required to provide services. The tax rate is the tax requirement divided by the total assessed value in the community.

How Your Taxes are Calculated:

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