Apply for property tax assistance
Apply now, through Fair Entry, and your one application can also get you access to additional subsidized programs and services. Even if you are not eligible for the Property Tax Assistance Program we may be able to help you access other resources.
Please note: Applying for this program does not alter your property tax obligation. If you are not enrolled in the Tax Installment Payment Plan, you must pay your taxes in full by June 30, 2017, to avoid a seven per cent penalty.
For more information about our programs or your property taxes, call 311. If you take part in the Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) and have questions about your monthly payments, please call 311 or visit calgary.ca/tipp.
All information submitted for property tax assistance is handled in a confidential manner. Personal information is collected in accordance with Section 33(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP).
