At the Council Meeting on February 20, 2024, Drumheller Town Council gave all three readings to Bylaw 13.24 - Supplementary Assessment, as presented.
The Town of Drumheller has always levied a supplementary tax via a bylaw and, under legislation, such a bylaw must be approved on an annual basis. The Town of Drumheller levies taxes twice a year, such is accustomed to the practices of other municipalities in Alberta.
The general tax levy is levied in the spring and is based on annual assessments prepared as of December 31 of the previous year. The general tax levy does not consider the portion of properties constructed and completed after December 31 of the previous year. Municipalities may pass a bylaw that allows both the assessment of additions to land after December 31 and permits the collection of property taxes on said additions for a portion of the year that the bylaw was passed.
The assessor for the municipality must determine the value of the additions since December 31 of the previous year. Once determined, the assessed value is then placed on the supplementary assessment roll and this assessment roll is then used to produce supplementary assessment notices.
Supplementary assessment notices are to be delivered to those with assessed property before the end of the calendar year. Property taxes based on the supplementary assessment are prorated to reflect only the portion of the year that the addition was completed or in operation in the municipality.
