Taxes

Notice of Mailing Taxes

The 2015 Tax Notices for the Town of Okotoks will be mailed in May to all assessed property owners. Town of Okotoks’ property owners are deemed to have received their Tax Notices as a result of the publication of this notice. 

You may contact the Town at 403 938-8919 to obtain further information on your property taxes.

How do I get a copy of my property tax bill?

If you have not received your property tax bill, please call 403-938-8919.  Non-receipt of your property tax bill does not exempt you from late payment penalties.  All charges on a tax account are the responsibility of the registered owner of the property.  When you purchase a property, adjustments for taxes are made between the vendor and purchaser.

How is your property tax levy calculated

Town Council approves the operating budget based on the expenditures required to support Town services.  From this amount sources of revenue other than property taxes, such as user fees and provincial grants, are subtracted.  The balance is the amount raised by property taxes. 

Where Do Your Tax Dollars Go?

Property taxes are used to pay for programs and maintain services such as Protective Services, snow removal, road, park and pathway maintenance, Community Services (Recreation Centre, Community programs, FCSS and Cultural & Historical Services).  Taxes are due June 30, 2015.  For payment options, refer to your Tax Notice.  

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 Installment Payment Plan (TIPP), your supplementary tax bill will show the adjusted monthly payment amount.

School Declaration

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 403-938-8919 or in person at Town Hall.  The change does not take effect until the following calendar year.  Downloadable forms are available on this web page under Related Publications.

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.  For more information, visit the Seniors Property Tax Deferral Program.
