Last week, Calgarians received their property assessments in
the mail. The 2017 property assessments reflect
the market value of properties on July 1, 2016, and the physical condition and
characteristics of properties on Dec. 31, 2016. The 2017 business assessments
reflect the typical net annual rental value of business premises on July 1,
2016. Each year, the assessment process provides market value assessments used
to determine the distribution of property and business taxes in Calgary.
As you may know in June of last year Council agreed on a 0% tax increase for 2017. With your assessment, you can calculate your estimated taxes here
Our business community makes up a large portion of our tax
base and with our city’s recent economic downturn I know a lot of businesses
are struggling. I have been and will continue to fight for small businesses and
I know that the $15 Million earmarked in our budget for business tax relief in
2017 is just a start.
For both residential and non-residential owners, it’s
important to review your assessment and make sure everything is correct. If you have concerns, he
