The City of Calgary advises residential and non-residential tax bills were sent out last week and any property owners who have not received their assessment bills by the first week of June should visit www.calgary.ca/propertytax or contact 311 to obtain a copy.

Bills were sent to 530,000 properties, and payments are due on Tuesday, June 30.

The City also advises property owners, who are facing financial hardship because of COVID-19, have an option to delay their payment until Sept. 30 without a late payment penalty.

Help is also available to assist eligible low-income homeowners who meet income guidelines and eligibility criteria, regardless of age. For more information, visit calgary.ca/ptap .

If property owners are able to pay their property tax on or before June 30 or can participate in the Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP), they’ll be supporting essential services for all Calgarians, said the City in a statement.

“The property tax deadline does not apply to property owners who pay monthly through TIPP. The regular filing fee for taxpayers who join TIPP has been suspended until January 1, 2021,” said the City. “This makes it easier for property owners to join TIPP, which helps them avoid late payment penalties and a large lump payment. More than 270,000 property owners pay their tax monthly through TIPP. Property owners can join TIPP at any time by visiting www.calgary.ca/TIPP to request an agreement or by calling 311.

“Funds collected through property tax are split between the Alberta Government and The City of Calgary. Property owners can go to the calgary.ca/taxbreakdown to enter the amount of their property tax and see how their municipal property tax dollars are invested in City services that Calgarians rely on every day.”
