Council sets a tax rate each year based on the approved budget. Although there was a 1.51 per cent increase approved in the 2020 budget, most property owners will see a decrease in annual taxes. This is due to growth (more properties mean the tax burden is spread amongst more people, which lowers the effect on each household) an average decrease in assessed values and a decrease in education taxes for most properties.
|Property type||Year||Assessed value||Municipal tax||Education tax||Total tax|
It is more difficult to compare assessed values of non-residential properties because there are fewer of them and the types of properties are more diverse. However, the majority of non-residential properties have seen no change in assessed value, resulting in an increase in municipal tax that is mostly offset by a decrease in education tax.
Property owners experiencing financial distress can delay municipal and education tax payments from June 30 to Sept. 30 without penalty. If you are not undergoing financial stress, please pay your taxes on June 30.
Municipal and education tax payments are due Sept. 30. Penalties will be applied to any accounts that have taxes owing after that date
If you rejoin the Monthly Tax Payment Plan (MTPP) after Sept. 30 a penalty will be applied on Oct.1
Due to the significant impact COVID-19 is having on businesses and residents, Council approved amendments made to the Tax Penalty Bylaw, which will waive the April 1, 2020 scheduled penalty. This penalty is applied to accounts that have taxes owing for up to the last three years.
The tax year runs from January to December:
- Property tax notices will be mailed May 29, 2020 and are due June 30, 2020.
- If you are enrolled in the Monthly Tax Payment Plan, your first payment comes out Jan. 31
- If you don't receive a tax notice or require a tax statement, please visit myAIRDRIE or contact the Taxation department
- Enter your WEB CODE as shown on your Taxation Notice to link your tax account.
- Failure to receive your tax notice does not exempt you from late payment penalties.
If you own a condominium you may receive a separate Taxation Notice for your parking stall(s) or storage unit(s). These annual notices are mailed out at the end of May and are due at the end of June each year.
The Taxation department collects property taxes from all Airdrie property owners. This includes the collection of funds for education property taxes and for the Rocky View Foundation, a not-for-profit association dedicated to providing low rental housing units for seniors in the City of Airdrie.
