Property taxes are calculated by multiplying the assessment by the appropriate tax rate. Tax rates are calculated based on the amount of tax revenue that is required to pay for the services that are provided. Revenues are collected through property taxation for Municipal Operations, Alberta School Foundation, Flagstaff Foundation, Recreation and Flagstaff Waste Management.
2013 MILL RATES

(Assessment X Tax Rate) divided by 1000 = Taxes
Residential (Public or Separate) → ($200,000 X 8.7997) / 1000 = $1,759.94
An estimation of taxes can also be figured out using the above formula. Use the current market value of the property you are trying to estimate the taxes for, by replacing the assessed value with the market value. Note that it would only be an estimate/rough approximation, as mill rates and market values are changed yearly.
