Property tax bills in the mail
Tax bills for more than 530,000 residential and non-residential properties are being mailed 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 visit calgary.ca/propertytax or contact 311 to obtain a copy of their bill.
Property tax is due Wednesday, June 30. A late payment penalty of 3.5% will be applied to any unpaid portion of property taxes 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). More than 285,000 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.
The City of Calgary is supporting citizens and businesses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the 2021 tax year, Council approved two municipal property tax relief measures to provide flexibility for property owners facing financial hardship:
- Council has amended the July 1 late payment penalty of 7% to 3.5% and cancelled the 7% Oct. 1 late payment penalty. In 2022, the 1% monthly arrears penalty on unpaid tax, has been cancelled for January, February, and March. It will resume on April 1, 2022.
- The Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP) suspended its 2% filing fee and there is no initial payment required for taxpayers who join TIPP between Jan. 1, 2021 and Dec. 31, 2021.
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.
