Property Tax Recovery
Any property with tax arrears of more than one year, will receive a warning notice from The City of Calgary. This will provide important information on minimum amounts that must be paid to prevent escalated tax recovery action.
Tax Recovery Notification
Any property with tax arrears of more than one year will have a Tax Recovery Notification registered on the certificate of title. For Designated Manufactured Homes a Tax Recovery Lien will be registered on the Personal Property through Alberta Registries.
A $60 charge will be levied against the property tax account when the Tax Notification Lien is registered on title.
Alberta Land Titles will notify all parties with a registered interest on title of The City of Calgary’s tax recovery lien.
The tax recovery notification from the Registrar of Land Titles states "if the tax arrears in respect of the parcel of land are not paid before March 31 in the next year, the municipality will offer the parcel for sale at a public auction."
Note: Parties receiving this notice could include mortgage holders, caveators, encumbrancees, etc.
Tax Recovery Notification Removal
Once payment of the tax arrears is received, The City of Calgary will send instructions to remove the tax recovery notification to Alberta Land Titles or Personal Properties. Payment of the full tax arrears will prevent a property from being sold at a public auction.
For all payment methods see Property Tax Payment.
