The City of Calgary has started mailing out property tax bills for approximately 570,000 residential and non-residential properties. Property tax is due Friday June 28. A late payment penalty of seven per cent will be applied to any unpaid portion of property tax on July 1.

By the end of next week, all property owners should have received their property tax bill in the mail. Property owners who have not received their property tax bill by the first week of June should contact 311 to obtain a statement of account. The late payment penalty applies to all accounts that pay after the June 28 due date, including property owners who did not receive their tax bill in the mail.

The property tax deadline does not apply to property owners who pay monthly through The City’s Tax Instalment Payment Plan (TIPP). Over 310,000 property owners pay their tax monthly through TIPP.

Property owners not on TIPP, need to pay their bill in full or join TIPP before June 28 to avoid late payment penalties. The easiest and fastest way to join TIPP is by using TIPP Online. It’s easy, safe and secure. Through TIPP Online, a customized agreement will be processed automatically. Once submitted, property owners will receive an email confirming their enrolment. TIPP Online can be accessed by going to and clicking on the Join TIPP box.
