Rocky Mountain House sets 2019 Tax Rates

townclr.JPG

The Town of Rocky Mountain House has adopted its 2019 tax rate bylaw.

In accordance with the Municipal Government Act, the Town of Rocky Mountain House is required to pass an annual tax rate bylaw to levy sufficient taxes for its operation.

"We, as council, were determined that there would be no increase to the municipal tax dollars from the 2018 level," said Mayor Tammy Burke. "The Town's administration staff worked diligently to find efficiencies to fulfill that goal."

The 2019 budget, amended on May 7, identifies $17,590,835 in revenue from all sources other than property taxation. Tax Rate Bylaw 2019/12F provides for a levy of $9,185,229 for municipal purposes.

In addition to municipal purposes, Tax Rate Bylaw 2019/12F provides for a levy of $2,508,348 for the school requisition; $80,593 for the Seniors Foundation Requisition and $920 for the Designated Industrial Properties Requisition. These are provincially-mandated requisitions the Town is obligated to collect.

Due to the recent provincial election, the town has not received the 2019 school requisition and as such, the 2019 requisition is calculated based on 2018 figures.

In 2018, The Town of Rocky Mountain House implemented small-business assessment sub classes as allowed under the Municipal Government Act. Final adjustments to the sub-classifications this year will ensure properties are assigned to the proper assessment class.

Overall, the Town of Rocky Mountain House saw a decrease in total assessed value of properties within Town limits, although the assessed value of tax-exempt properties increased. Property owners may see a variance from last year’s municipal tax invoice depending on their property’s assessed value.

Property-owners should receive their 2019 combined assessment and property tax notice by the end of May. Property-owners have the opportunity to appeal their assessment, or any other assessment on the roll, within 60 days from the date of mailing. The assessment roll is available for viewing during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m., at the Town Office (5116-50 Ave).

Tax instalment payment plan

In order to support our community by reducing pressure in a time of economic uncertainty, Council has also adopted Tax Instalment Payment Plan bylaw 2019/10F. This bylaw brings a significant change to enrolment requirements for property owners to make monthly payments towards their municipal taxes.

Tax Instalment Payment Plan bylaw 2019/10F allows property owners to enrol anytime throughout the year and make equal monthly payments towards their tax bill.

For more information on enrolling in a Tax Instalment Payment Plan, please call the Town Office at 403-845-2866.
