Seniors Property Tax Deferral Program
Seniors in Alberta now have the option to defer their residential property taxes to keep extra money in their pockets and enable them to stay in their homes longer.
Through the Seniors Property Tax Deferral Program, homeowners 65 and older can defer all or part of their residential property taxes through a low-interest home equity loan with the Alberta government. The loans are repaid when the home is sold, or sooner if the senior chooses.

Bylaw 05-13 To authorize the Rates of Taxation to be levied against assessable property for 2013 (325 KB)
The Town of Okotoks is required by legislation to bill and collect the school taxes on behalf of the Provincial Government (Alberta Learning) and Christ The Redeemer Catholic School Division. While the Town bills and collects school taxes, the Town has no jurisdiction or control over school board budgets or operations. School support is shown as “undeclared” unless a declaration of school support is ﬁled by the owner. If you wish to change your school support designation, a declaration may be obtained by calling 938-8919 or in person at Town Hall. The change does not take effect until the following calendar year.
Supplementary Tax Bills
If a new building or an addition to an existing building is completed in the calendar year, a supplementary tax bill will be issued by the end of the year. The supplementary tax bill will reﬂect the number of months the building was completed or occupied during the year. To avoid penalties, supplementary tax bills must be paid by the due date as noted on the tax bill. If you participate in the Tax Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) Form (38 KB) (TIPP), your supplementary tax bill will show the adjusted monthly payment amount.
