On May 21, Chestermere’s City Council officially set the 2019 Tax Rate and included a 2% tax cut for Chestermere residents.
Watch the video from Mayor Chalmers for his thoughts on the decision:
Quick facts on 2019 Municipal Taxes:
- Property taxes are based on the tax rate and assessment value of a property. If a homeowner’s property value remains the same as last year, residents can expect to pay 2% less in municipal taxes this year.
- Tax notices will be sent in June.
- Residents who pay in a lump sum must submit the full amount by July 31.
- Residents who pay taxes monthly through the Tax Installment Payment Plan will see any changes applied to their July bill.
- Residents will see a school tax included on their bill. This is set by the Province and the funds are sent directly to them. The City is required to collect this tax but has no jurisdiction over it.
