Assessment Appeal Process

Appeal Process



If you have questions about your assessment or disagree with it, you can contact Accurate Assessment Group at bob@aag-gis.com or 1-877-438-2305.

If you would like to meet with the assessor to review your property’s assessment, they will be available on March 30 & 31, 2016. Appointments are required and can be booked by calling (403) 207-7057.

If you do not agree with the assessor’s explanation or calculation, you have the right to file a formal complaint to the Assessment Review Board. The Assessment Review Board will then review your case at a hearing.

To file an official complaint:



  1. Complete a formal complaint form and submit a $50.00 fee.
  2. Complaints must be received by the Finance Manager / Assessment Review Clerk at the Municipal Office.
    no later than 60 days from the date of mailing of your assessment notice.
  3. For more information, contact the City at (403) 207-7050 or email taxes@chestermere.ca.
