Changes to Your Bill
- Published: 14 December 2016
Starting January 1, 2017, your gas bill will include a line item for the carbon levy. This price is applied to fuels that emit greenhouse gases when combusted, including the fuel used to heat your home.
Certain fuels, such as marked gasoline and diesel used on Alberta farms, are exempt from the levy. Most Albertans will receive a rebate that covers costs associated with the carbon levy. You don’t need to apply for the rebate. You will automatically receive it if you filed 2015 income tax and meet the income criteria.
