This calculator includes tax changes as a result of the 2022 Adjustments to the One Calgary Service Plans and Budgets and changes due to the annual assessment process. The tax rates are estimated and will be updated when Council approves the Property Tax Bylaw later in the spring. The provincial budget is not yet available and so no change to the provincial budget has been included.
*Your 2022 Property Tax bill, mailed at the end May 2022, may include additional factors specific to your account that may change the total amount owed.
