If you are a property owner in Yellowknife, you will receive your Notice of Assessment from the City soon. All ratepayers in Yellowknife have the option of allocating where their school property taxes are sent. There are three options in total: 100% allocation to either Yellowknife Education District No. 1 (YK1) or Yellowknife Catholic Schools, allocation split by enrolment or a custom allocation declaration.
If a ratepayer does not declare a specific school tax support, taxes will automatically be allocated by enrolment to each school board. If you wish to change your support, you must complete and submit a School Support Declaration Form to the City of Yellowknife. Completed forms must then be filed with the Secretary of the Board of Revision by February 19, 2021. Forms can be dropped off at City Hall, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to (867) 920-5649 or mailed to P.O. Box 580, Yellowknife, NT X1A 2N4.
Benefits to specifically directing your school tax dollars include continued funding for all the outstanding programs available to YK1 students, including French Immersion, Intensive and Post-Intensive French, Indigenous Education, Montessori, Athletic Excellence, Music, Drama, Advanced Placement and much more. YK1 students and staff appreciate your continued support of our schools and programs.
