Mackenzie County Property Taxes

Property tax is a tax based on the assessed value of a property. If you own a property or parcel of land, you will have to pay property tax. It is used to pay for city services such as police, the fire department, and public transit as well as elementary and secondary education.

There are two main parts to a property tax:

  • A municipal tax that depends on the municipality of the property
  • An education tax that may change from municipality to municipality

Some cities may add additional taxes.

Property tax rates also depend on the type of property. Common major categories are Residential, Multi-Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Farmland. Almost all homes will apply under Residential property tax rates.

Assessed Value of a Property

Properties in Alberta are assessed every year by municipalities according to guidelines by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and the Alberta Assessment and Property Tax Policy Unit. This is different from BC and Ontario where property assessments are conducted by a provincial entity. Most properties are assessed using a market value-based approach. There are three ways that municipalities can use to determine a property’s market value:

1.Sales Comparison Approach

Most properties are valued under this approach. This compares the sales of similar properties in the assessment year to determine a valuation for the property. The assessed value may not equal the actual market value or sale value of a property.

2.Cost Approach

New properties are valued under this approach. This uses the cost of the property if someone were to rebuild it to determine a valuation for the property. This includes the price of the land and the price of all improvements (e.g. buildings) on top of it. While this takes into account the market value of the land, it does not consider the market value of the property as a whole.

3.Income Approach

For properties that are dedicated to generating income like rental properties or offices, an income-based approach is used. In these cases, it may not be possible to find recent sales of comparable properties. This approach uses the income generated by the property to determine its assessed value.
