Property Assessments

The Guide to Property Assessment and Taxation is available if you would like to learn about property assessment in Alberta.

You have 60 days from the date of the tax notice to file an assessment complaint. Tax assessors can make changes to your assessment before you file an official complaint, which may save you money on complaint filing fees.

Review boards and legislation

If you are filing complaints for the current assessment year, we recommend that you:

  • Review all changes; and
  • View the decision requirements of both the Local Assessment Review Board and the Composite Assessment Review Board.

Even if you file an appeal on your assessment, taxes are still due by June 30.

Appealing decisions

Appeals to the decisions of both boards are only available to the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench. There is no longer a right to appeal to the Municipal Government Board.

Making an assessment complaint

Please complete a complaint form and contact the Clerk of the Assessment Review Board at 780-939-4361 no later than the final date for complaint shown on your Tax Notice. Make sure to include the payment for any required filing fees. Fees will be refunded if your appeal is successful.

Complaint agent authorization

You can use a Complaint Agent Authorization Form if the property owner is being represented by someone designated on their behalf.
