Strathcona County property tax sees 4.84 per cent increase

Strathcona County residents will begin to receive their property tax notices next week, with the total tax rising by 4.84 per cent.

“In the face of high inflation, we’ve struck a careful balance between fostering growth and maintaining our current infrastructure,” said Mayor Rod Frank. “Strathcona County’s success is achieved through a time-tested formula of municipal excellence built on sustainable finances. Over the three-year term of this current Council, any tax increases have been 3.25 per cent lower than inflation. This means that in real dollars, we are paying less in taxes.”

According to a release from the county, 1.87 per cent of this increase will be addressing inflation and growth, with the increased tax funds going towards several projects, including a new firehouse and a multi-use recreation hub.

With these increases, this means that the average residential home in the county will see taxes increased by nearly $10 a month, with commercial businesses seeing an increase closer to $93 per month.

The county has also introduced a new feature when it comes to property taxes – MyAccounts. This online portal gives residents the ability to view tax amounts, transactions, and more. Residents can sign up for the portal on the Strathcona County website.
