Taxes

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. Taxes are then calculated using this formula:

Property assessment x total tax rate = total property taxes

Example:
$550,000 (property assessment) x 7.633843 (total tax rate) = $4,198.61 annual tax
1000
