RED DEER- City Council has set the new property tax rates for 2017.

The combined tax increase including the requisitioned amounts paid to Alberta Education and the Piper Creek Foundation result in total tax increases of 1.1 per cent for each residential, multifamily and non-residential property.

This year The City will collect $44.8 million in property taxes on behalf of the Provincial Government.

The approved $128.3 million municipal property tax requirement will fund the programs and services provided to City of Red Deer residents every day.

The tax increase means a typical house assessed at $325,000 will pay $2.69 per month more in total property tax.

Property tax notices will be mailed on May 19.

Taxes are due on June 30.

Penalties will be applied to outstanding balances on July 1.

Property taxpayments can be made at City Hall, online, at your financial institution, by mail, or through the Tax Instalment Plan.
