Property tax sale

The City of Calgary recognizes the impact COVID-19 has on citizens and local businesses and the need to focus on the well-being of family and neighbours. To assist Calgarians we’ve delayed the 2020 tax sale. However, like all municipalities in Alberta we’re still legislated by the Municipal Government Act to hold a tax sale of properties with three years of taxes in arrears. 

Tax sale is the last option used when other methods of recovering taxes fail. We continue to work closely with the Province to investigate opportunities to minimize the impact property tax recovery has on property owners.

2020 Property tax sale

Each year properties with more than 3 years outstanding tax arrears are offered for sale by The City of Calgary, in accordance with the Municipal Government Act, Chapter M-26 RSA 2000, Part 10, Division 8.
