Calgary Homeowners Mailed Tax Bills
CALGARY – Over 530,000 tax bills are now mailed to residential and non-residential property owners in Calgary.
Property taxes are due Wednesday June 30 and a late penalty of 3.5% will be added to any portion unpaid on July 1.
Anyone who hasn’t received a tax bill before the first week of June should visit the city’s website at calgary.ca/propertytax or contact 311 for a copy of their invoice.
The property tax deadline does not apply to the more than 285,000 homeowners who pay monthly under the city’s Installment Payment Plan (TIPP).
Owners can join TIPP by visiting www.calgary.ca/TIPP to request an agreement or by calling 311.
Council approved two relief measures for tax year 2021 to provide flexibility for property owners facing financial difficulties – changing the July 1 late payment penalty from 7% to 3.5% and waiving the 7% penalty for late payment on October 1.
The one percent monthly arrears penalty on unpaid taxes has been waived for January, February, and March 2022 and will resume on April 1, 2022.
The Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) has suspended its filing fee by 2% and no upfront payment is required for taxpayers who join TIPP between January 1 and December 31.
Help is also available for low-income homeowners who meet the guidelines and eligibility criteria, regardless of their age.
Homeowners can go to the city website to enter their property tax amount and see how their property tax dollars are invested in the city services Calgarians rely on every day.
