The municipality is responsible for ensuring that each property owner pays his or her share of taxes. Property assessment is the method used to distribute the tax burden among property owners in a municipality.
Assessment x Municipal Tax Rate / 1000 = Property Tax
The tax amount on your Assessment and Tax Notice is for taxes levied from January to December of the current year.
1. Municipal Levy - This amount is paid directly to the Town of Pincher Creek and pays for municipal infrastructure, facilities, service and programs.
2. School Levy - This amount is collected by the Town of Pincher Creek and paid directly to Province of Alberta, for maintenance and development of the school system. The amount of school funds paid by each municipality is based on population and the tax base. All municipalities must collect and forward these funds to the Province.
3. Senior Housing - This amount is collected by the Town of Pincher Creek and paid directly to the Pincher Creek Foundation and helps pay for senior housing in our area. If applicable, all municipalities must collect and forward these funds.
You have until June 30th to pay your current taxes without penalty. Any account not paid in full as of July 1st will be penalized 12% of the current outstanding balance.
If taxes are not paid by January 1st of the following year, an additional 10% will be applied to the total outstanding balance.
