Assessment notices are only mailed when there has been a change to your assessment, generally every four years, unless you have changes to your assessment in the time between the province-wide reassessments. The next reassessment year is 2025.
Taxes cover the time frame from January 1 to December 31.
Taxes can be paid prior to receiving your tax notice; the amount paid will be based on the previous year's taxes. The discount schedule applies to the Municipal portion of taxes only. This may result in a credit or an amount owing once the tax rates have been set for the current year.
In order to receive the discount, you must make payment before the final business day of the current month, or if you are mailing your payment, it must be postmarked prior to the final day of the month. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
Taxes are due on or before December 31 of the current tax year; after December 31, penalties will be levied on arrears. The penalty on tax arrears is 24% per annum.
The Municipal mill rate for 2021 has been set at 4.8 mills.
The Education mill rates are as follows: Ag 1.42 residential 4.54 commercial 6.86
The base tax is $355.00; it is applied to all assessed land within the RM, commercial, agricultural and residential. It is used to cover expenses that are evenly applied to all properties such as fire protection, police services, SAMA, CPL Recreation and Wapiti Library Levy.
A $35.00 base tax has been applied per titled property. This fee is to be put aside for future capital expenditures.
This includes things such as road upgrades, bridge upgrades, new buildings or new equipment, or significant upgrades to existing capital infrastructure or landfill decommissioning.
The negative sign after the amount means that you have a credit on your account and do not owe any taxes for the current year. This may be because you have prepaid your taxes in January and have overpaid as the January payments are based on the previous years tax levy.
