New property owners in Alberta
For those who bought a new property in Alberta in 2023, the City states if you did not receive a tax notice, please contact the Assessment & Taxation department immediately.
A two-month delay at the Alberta Land Titles Office is resulting in the City not receiving Alberta ownership change information in a timely manner and a tax notice may not have been issued to the new property owner. The new owner must provide the city with proof of ownership, and the city will provide a copy of the tax notice.
Property tax determination and payment options
Property taxes are calculated and billed annually using the property’s assessed value and the 2023 property tax mill rate approved by City Council on Tuesday, May 23.
