Red Deer County Approves 2017 Tax Bylaw

At the May 9 Council meeting, Red Deer County Council approved 2nd and 3rd reading of the municipal tax rate bylaw for 2017. In recognition of the continued economic challenges, Council has approved a zero percent increase in tax rates. Major projects for the year include Gasoline Alley road construction, bridge repairs, and contributions to the Delburne Agriplex.

Tax rates vary on individual properties based on their market value assessment. Individual property owners can anticipate being in line with the scenarios below:
*Residential Municipal taxes:
2016 taxes - $374.06 per $100,000 in assessed value
2017 taxes - $374.06 per $100,000 in assessed value

A residential property assessed at $500,000 would pay the same amount in municipal taxes for 2017 (if no change in assessed value occurred).

*Non-Residential Municipal taxes:
2016 taxes - $1,100.55 per $100,000 in assessed value
2017 taxes - $1,100.55 per $100,000 in assessed value

A non-residential property assessed at $500,000 would pay the same amount in municipal taxes for 2017 (if no change in
assessed value occurred).

Community, Environmental, and Protective Services levies will remain unchanged from 2016 (0.4000, 0.1590, and 0.5000 respectively).

Red Deer County’s 2017 budget is $74 million, which is down slightly from 2016. Approx. $44 million of that budget comes from taxation. This money is used to fund everything from maintenance of roads and infrastructure, to water and waste management, agriculture and environmental services, community services, fire, patrol and emergency management. The County would like to remind residents that taxes are due on June 30, 2017.
