2020 Property tax bills
Tax bills for approximately 530,000 residential and non-residential properties are being mailed this week. All property owners should have received their property tax bill in the mail by the end of next week.
Property owners who have not received their property tax bill by the first week of June should visit calgary.ca/propertytax or contact 311 to obtain a copy of their bill.
Property tax is due Tuesday, June 30th. Citizens facing financial hardship because of COVID-19, have an option to delay their payment until Sept. 30 without a late payment penalty. If they’re 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.
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. 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.
Help is available to assist eligible low-income homeowners who meet income guidelines and eligibility criteria, regardless of age. For more information visit calgary.ca/ptap.
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.
The City is committed to engaging with Calgarians and working together to ensure our services align with their priorities in a fiscally responsible manner. We want citizens to know how property tax is collected and used to deliver essential City services and programs while keeping the cost of local government low.
