The average municipal tax bill is comprised of three elements:
Municipal tax rates are determined by the programs, services, and infrastructure needs of residents and businesses. Tax Rates are applied to the assessed value of properties within the municipalities.
Education Property Tax
Every year the province calculates, based on assessment value, the amount each municipality must contribute towards the public education system. Municipalities collect the education property tax from rate payers and then forward it to the province for a deposit into the Alberta School Foundation Fund.
Brazeau Seniors Foundation
the Town receives a requisition from the Brazeau Seniors Foundation which provides affordable seniors housing. Under the Alberta Housing Act, the Town is required to collect these funds from the municipality property owners, similar to the education requisition.
