A 2.2% tax increase means an average of $68 per year more per taxable property, based on an estimated 6,700 taxable properties within the Town.

School Taxes and other requisitions: As with all Alberta municipalities, the Town of High River is required through legislation to collect for Provincial education taxes. The Town also remits for seniors requisitions and designated industrial properties. Details and amounts remitted can be found in the Town's Property Tax Bylaw.
Your property assessment is used to calculate your share of the revenue required to pay these requisitions. It is not revenue for the Town. The Province sets the education tax rates on behalf of the Alberta School Foundation Fund (ASFF) and Roman Catholic School District (RCSD).
Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) and Citizen Self Service.
This plan allows you to pay your property taxes in equal monthly installments instead of one single annual payment. You can apply for the program if your tax account is up-to-date. Payment is automatically transferred from your bank account on the 15th of each month. To learn more or to sign up for the TIPP program, visit the Town’s Property Taxes page.
