Ward 1 official website

On Friday, May 26 The City will mail approximately 500,000 property tax bills to residential and non-residential property owners. By the end of next week all property owners should have received their property tax bill in the mail.  Property owners who have not received a tax bill by the first week of June can request a copy of the bill by visiting property tax document request or by calling 311.

 

·      Property taxes are due Friday, June 30.  A late payment penalty of 7% will be applied to any unpaid portion of the current year’s property tax on July 1 and Oct. 1.  Further penalties of 1% will be added on the first day of each month to any portion remaining unpaid after Dec. 31. 
·      The property tax deadline does not apply to property owners who pay monthly through The City’s Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP).  Approximately 260,000 property owners have joined TIPP and pay their taxes monthly.  Property owners can join TIPP at any time by visiting www.calgary.ca/TIPP to request an agreement or by calling 311.
·      City Council is continuing to take action to support Calgary’s economy while helping all property owners by providing two one-time rebates, shown as a single credit, on the 2017 property tax bill.
·      Eligible non-residential property owners will also see a credit on their 2017 property tax bill from the 2017 Municipal Non-Residential Phased Tax Program (PTP). The PTP was put in place to assist non-residential properties impacted by the redistributive effect of the 2017 annual assessment process.
·      Help is available to assist eligible low-income homeowners who meet income guidelines and eligibility criteria, regardless of age through Fair Entry and the Property Tax Assistance Program (PTAP).
·      The City of Calgary collects property taxes from all property owners within the municipality to help provide local municipal services and to pay the provincial property tax requisition.
