APPENDIX C ORDER 1 In this Order, (a) "annexed farm land" means annexed land in respect of which the assessment class of farm land has been assigned under section 297(1) of the Municipal Government Act; (b) "annexed land" means the land described in Appendix A and shown on the sketch in Appendix B; (c) "annexed non-farm land" means annexed land in respect of which an assessment class other than farm land has been assigned under section 297(1) of the Municipal Government Act; (d) "farm building" means an improvement located on annexed farm land, to the extent it is used for farming operations; (e) "farming operations" has the meaning given to it in the Matters Relating to Assessment and Taxation Regulation (AR 220/2004); (f) "farm residence" means a residence in a farm unit that (i) meets the criteria set out in sections 21 and 22 of the Matters Relating to Assessment and Taxation Regulation (AR 220/2004), and (ii) is located on annexed farm land; (g) "farm unit" has the meaning given to it in the Matters Relating to Assessment and Taxation Regulation (AR 220/2004). 2(1) If the Red Deer County mill rate is less than the City of Red Deer mill rate in the year of annexation, the City of Red Deer must provide all residential properties and all non-residential properties excepting linear and railway properties a one-time, non-refundable tax credit. (1.1)For the non-residential properties referred to in subsection (1), the one-time, non-refundable tax credit will be restricted to those properties that experience an actual increase in the amount of their taxes that would be payable in the year of annexation based upon the fact that the property is now located in the City of Red Deer. (2) To calculate the tax credit referred to in subsection (1) for a property, the City of Red Deer shall determine the difference between the City of Red Deer and Red Deer County mill rates that would be applicable to the property in the year of annexation. The difference between the two mill rates is to be applied to the assessed value of the property as determined by Red Deer County for the purposes of taxation in the year of annexation, excluding the assessed value of machinery and equipment. The result multiplied by ten (10) is the one-time, non- refundable credit for the property. (3) A tax credit determined for a property under this section must be applied first to any arrears and then to any other amount owing under a tax notice for the property. Any remainder is to be retained by the City and applied against future tax notices for the property until the credit is exhausted. The first application of the tax credit must occur after September 1, 2009 and before April 1, 2010. (4) The tax credit attaches to the property and has no cash value. (5) If the property is subdivided, the tax credit or that portion of it which remains at the date of subdivision is to be divided in the same manner as for outstanding tax balances. (6) The City of Red Deer shall keep a record of the application and ongoing balance of a tax credit and shall provide that information to the taxpayer on request. 3(1) For taxation purposes in 2010 and in each subsequent year up to and including 2034, annexed property that is farm land or farm buildings excluding farm residences (a) must be assessed in the same manner as if the property were located in a county or municipal district, but valuations for that property must be determined by the assessor for the City of Red Deer, (b) shall continue to receive the exemptions applicable to the property under the Matters Relating to Assessment and Taxation Regulation, and (c) must, in respect of each assessment class that applies to that property, be taxed by the City of Red Deer using the municipal tax rates established by Red Deer County. (2) Subsection (1) applies to all annexed farm land and farm buildings excluding farm residences until the expiry of December 31, 2034, except that subsection (1) ceases to apply to a parcel (a) of less than 16 hectares (40 acres) that is created by a subdivision of title, or (b) that, at the request of, or on behalf of the landowner(s) or a purchaser, is redesignated under the City of Red Deer Land Use Bylaw to a designation other than agricultural at the end of the taxation year in which the subdivision or redesignation occurs. 4 Notwithstanding section 3, on and after January 1, 2010 the annexed land is to be subject to the supplementary assessment and supplementary tax bylaws of the City of Red Deer. 5 Red Deer County is responsible for all property assessment appeals related to 2009 assessment notices for property within the annexed land. 6 The City of Red Deer shall provide compensation to Red Deer County as follows: (a) $601,919.00 on or before July 31, 2010, (b) $722,303.00 on or before July 31, 2011, (c) $541,728.00 on or before July 31, 2012, (d) $361,152.00 on or before July 31, 2013, and (e) $180,576.00 on or before July 31, 2014.
