City of Edmonton municipal tax rates increase to 2.6 per cent

News Release
City sets 2019 municipal taxes

City Council approved Edmonton’s municipal tax rate for 2019, resulting in a 2.6 per cent municipal tax increase.

City Council worked hard to hold the line on existing programs and services and keep increases to the base budget below inflation. Council increased investment in areas such as:

Valley Line LRT
Alley Renewal Program
Edmonton Police Service
Transit Safety and Security

“Property taxes mean value for Edmontonians,” says Roxanne Kits, Acting Deputy City Manager for Financial and Corporate Services at the City of Edmonton. “They translate into services people rely on and amenities that help them live well, every day.”

For an Edmonton home valued at $399,500 that experienced the average assessment change, the 2019 budget will provide services for just over seven dollars per day, or $2,586 per year, an increase of $76 over 2018.
