For the purpose of assessment and taxation, properties are classified as one or more of the following: residential, non-residential, farmland, or machinery and equipment based on their use as required by the MGA.
The residential class may be divided into as many subclasses as the municipality feels appropriate (i.e. vacant, multi-family, condominium, etc). The non-residential class may be divided into 3 subclasses, as allowed by the MGA and the matters relating to assessment subclasses regulation.
The MD of Taber's Small Business Subclass was announced on July 9, 2019. Learn more about non-residential subclasses.
Tax rates must be set for each assessment class or subclass and may differ between classes or subclasses, with the exception of machinery and equipment which must have the same rate as non-residential.
