Individual property assessment and taxes usually change each year due to the requirements of the annual budget, and year-to-year changes in property value.
Rocky View County is required to collect additional education, seniors’ lodging and Designated Industrial Property (DIP) tax on behalf of the Province of Alberta.
Property Tax Formula
County property taxes are calculated based on the application of the following formula:
Assessed Value x Residential Tax Rate
If the assessed value of a residential property is $950,000, and the residential tax rate for the year is 0.0050773, the estimated taxes on that property are:
$950,000 x 0.0050773 = $4,819.64
