Property Tax Rates
General property taxation is the single most important source of revenue for local governments. Each year, Council must project the net amount of funds required through property taxes to support local services. General municipal tax rates are set once the budget is approved. Property tax notices are mailed in mid-May for the calendar year of January 1 to December 31. The general municipal tax rate, together with the assessed value and classification (property use – i.e., residential, non-residential, farm) of the taxable property, determines the taxation for each property. Please refer to the Beaumont, Alberta’s Tax Rate Bylaw.
Property taxes help pay for municipal services, including, fire, police, road maintenance, snow removal, parks, recreation facilities, family services and much more.

If you are expecting a decrease in your assessment, it is likely that your total taxes payable will decrease, too. The amount on the original property tax notice remains due and payable by the tax due date. If you have not paid your property taxes that are payable by the tax due date (as indicated on the original property tax notice), a penalty may apply to any unpaid tax amount if the amount is not paid by the tax due date and the assessment appeal is not accepted.
Combined Supplemental Assessment and Taxation Notices are mailed at the end of October with taxes due November 30. You are still required to pay this amount in full even if you are enrolled on the Tax Installment Plan.
Tax certificates can be obtained by faxing a request to 780-929-8729. There is a $25.00 cost for this service, which will be invoiced to you when the certificate is prepared. We process tax certificates on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons at which time we will fax your tax certificate immediately and mail the original. Please allow up to 48 hours for your request to be processed, as we are unable to do ‘rush’ tax certificates at this time.
