Taxation and Utilities

Taxes help pay for City services like parks, emergency services, recreation facilities, road maintenance and snow removal. 

Assessment & Supplemental Assessment

Assessment notices are mailed at the end of February with a 60 day complaint period. Tax notices are mailed at the end of May, with taxes due June 30, unless you are enrolled in our tax installment plan. 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 in the tax installment plan.

Property Taxes

Your property tax includes the educational tax rate set by the Province of Alberta. These taxes are collected by the City for the province to fund public and separate schools. Council cannot change the education rates set by the province. Property Search Link

Virtual City Hall

Virtual City Hall is a self-serve portal that offers Beaumont residents, property owners and other stakeholders the ability to review and pay outstanding balances, review past utility bills and tax assessments and generate tax certificates in real time.

In December 2022, City staff discovered that most Virtual City Hall services had been disrupted. We continue to work with our service provider on addressing this as soon as possible. While our online portal is down, City staff are happy to help with requests.

School Declaration

Now that Beaumont has two school districts, public and Roman Catholic, individuals can declare support for property taxes to a specific district. If you would like to declare support for the Roman Catholic separate school district, fill out the School Support Form (PDF) and submit to the City. Look on your assessment to see what you have currently declared.
