Seniors Property Tax Deferral Program
Homeowners 65 and older can defer all or part of their residential property taxes through a low interest home equity loan with the Alberta government. The loans are repaid when the house is sold, or sooner if the senior chooses. For more information visit the Alberta Health website or call 1-877-644-9992.
