About Property Taxes

The 2017 budgets for Municipal, Provincial Education, and Green Acres Foundation increased by an average of 2.5%. 

Your property tax is made up of:

  • A municipal portion - based on the budget City Council sets (about 76% of your total residential bill)
  • A provincial education portion - The Alberta Government sends the City an invoice for the education tax. The City of Lethbridge is required to collect this tax from property owners on behalf of the province (about 23% of your total residential bill)
  • A Green Acres portion - The Green Acres Foundation sends the City an invoice for the senior citizen housing management body in Southern Alberta (about 1% of your total residential bill)
  • Some residents also pay local improvement charges
Property taxes are due on the last business day of June. 

The final tax rates are not set until late April or May, when the budget for municipal services is finalized and the provincial requisition for education taxes has been received.
