|Tourist Home Classification|
For properties zoned and classed for assessment purposes as 'Tourist Home', the Town of Canmore Bylaw 2013-01 includes a provision whereby registered owners on title may apply to the Town for the Residential property assessment sub-class 'Tourist Home Personal Use. This would traditionally result in a lower tax rate for the calculation of the municipal portion of the annual property tax.
Homeowners who wish to avail themselves of this provision must submit an Application for 'Tourist Home Personal Use'. As part of the application process, the property owner must complete a Statutory Declaration annually no later than January 31 of the current tax year.
