Senior Property Tax Rebate Program

Offered since 2006, the Cochrane-based program assists eligible low-income seniors with their property taxes by providing a rebate of up to $500. Eligible senior residents must be 60+ years of age, own and live in the residence of ownership and only own a maximum of one property. Eligible applicants must meet income guidelines set out by the Alberta Seniors Benefit Program: 

  • For one owner on title, income must be under $31,080. 
  • For two owners on title, the combined incomes must be under $50,720. 

All applicants book an appointment with an FCSS staff member and provide a copy of their 2022 Revenue Canada Income Tax Notice of Assessment to confirm eligibility.

The Cochrane Seniors Property Tax Support Program will provide a $500 rebate on municipal property taxes for eligible seniors.

Seniors Property Tax Deferral Program

In addition, seniors 65 years of age and older may be eligible to access additional tax support through the Government of Alberta Seniors Property Tax Deferral Program. The program provides eligible seniors the option to defer all or a portion of their property taxes through a low-interest home equity loan.
