Property taxes are due by June 30, 2017. 

Under the Municipal Government Act, all property owners are obligated to pay their property taxes, including those whose properties were damaged by wildfire. 

Residential property owners will see a credit adjustment on their tax notice. It includes the following:

  • A 2016 education tax adjustment has been applied to residential properties in the same manner as the 2016 municipal tax cancellation. 
  • For properties destroyed or irreparably damaged by the wildfire, a 2017 tax cancellation has also been applied to both the municipal and education tax levy. This tax cancellation will end when the property is sold or the property rebuild is complete.
