Assessment and Tax Notices are mailed in mid May and taxes are due the last business day of June.
If you do not receive your notice, please contact the Assessment and Tax Department without delay. Failure to receive a tax notice or loss of a tax notice will not be accepted as a reason for late payment.
Your property tax is made up of three components, including the municipal levy, the education levy and the seniors levy.
In 2016, for every residential property tax dollar, 74% pays for municipal services, 25% is collected on behalf of Alberta Education and 1% supports the seniors housing as operated by the Sturgeon Foundation in the towns within Sturgeon County and the City of St. Albert. Percentages are subject to change every calendar year.
Taxes may change due to one or a combination of these factors:
• A change in the Sturgeon County annual budget or requisition requirements for municipal operations, or a provincial education.
• A change in assessment (market value) of more or less than the average.
If a property experiences a change in assessment above or below the average for the county, it will have a corresponding tax increase or decrease. This relationship is illustrated below.
A map showing the median change in assessment across Sturgeon County market areas for 2015 is available here.
