2023 Property tax bill mailout
The City of Calgary started mailing out property tax bills for approximately 555,000 residential and non-residential properties this week. By the end of next week, all property owners should have received their property tax bill in the mail. Property owners who have not received their property tax bill by the first week of June should contact 311 to obtain a statement of account.
Property tax is due Friday, June 30. A late payment penalty of seven per cent will be applied to any unpaid portion of property tax on July 1.
The property tax deadline does not apply to property owners who pay monthly through The City’s Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP). Approximately 300,000 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.
It’s important to note that the Alberta Land Titles Office is behind on ownership and address change updates. Alberta Land Titles is The City’s only source for property ownership details, if a property’s ownership or mailing address has not been updated by the Alberta Land Titles Office the tax bill will be mailed using outdated ownership information.
Property owners who have not received their property tax bill by the first week of June should contact 311 to obtain a statement of account. The late payment penalty applies to all accounts that pay after the June 30 due date, including property owners who did not receive their tax bill in the mail.
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.
