Each year the Town of Turner Valley establishes its tax rate according to the budgetary requirements for municipal services to function and long-term planning to occur.
The budget is usually passed by Council in December. Property tax rates are then legislated based on all available sources of revenue for the Town.
Paying Your Taxes
Taxes are due by June 30.
Late tax payments incur a 6% penalty on July 1 and again on October 1 on any current unpaid balance unless you are enrolled in the Tax Installment Payment Plan. On January 1 late tax payments incur an additional 12% penalty on the total outstanding amount, as per the Imposition of Tax Penalties Bylaw.
For more information on paying your taxes and how your taxes are calculated please refer to the 2017 Property Tax Brochure.
TIPP – Tax Installment Payment Plan
TIPP, the Tax Installment Payment Plan, is an easy and convenient tax payment process that divides your property tax into monthly payments spread across the year, helping you budget for other expenses while avoiding a large lump sum.
To enroll in TIPP, please submit the Tax Installment Payment Plan Application form to the municipal office.
To cancel or change TIPP authorization, please submit a TIPP Cancel – Change Authorization form to the municipal office.
