Fort Saskatchewan homeowners are paying less in property taxes than people living in Edmonton, St. Albert and 13 other municipalities across the province.
Fort Saskatchewan sits at ninth place in a 24-city ranking of property tax rates recently released by real estate company Zoocasa.
The city earned the spot with its 0.78944 per cent property tax rate. That amounts to a $3,947 bill on a home worth $500,000. On a home of the same assessed value, residents of first-place Fort McMurray would pay $2,373.
Bottom-ranking Grande Prairie has the highest tax rate on the list. An owner of a $500,000 home in that city would pay $7,400 at tax time.
Zoocasa based its calculations on property tax rates published on municipal websites and August 2018 average home prices sourced from regional real estate boards.
