Property Taxation

Yellowhead County works hard to provide you value for your hard-earned tax dollars. Council and Staff endeavour to ensure that you are provided with the highest level of service possible while considering the needs and expectations of Yellowhead County residents.

Your property tax includes taxes for a number of different authorities along with the tax amount that will fund services and capital projects within the County. Yellowhead County collects school taxes on behalf of the provincial government, designated industrial property assessment costs on behalf of the provincial government and funds for seniors housing on behalf of the Evergreens Foundation. The amount of the requisition by these bodies sets different components of the tax rate you see on your tax bill.
