Residents can expect to receive their property assessment before the end of March.
Property tax assessments occur annually and provide the City and residents with critical information regarding City-wide tax distribution and individual property tax levies.
What is a property assessment?
A property assessment is a statement of the current value placed on your property and home. A commonly held misconception is that an assessment notice is a bill. It is not. Instead, it provides an assessment value that is used to determine the fair distribution of property tax in the City.
Reviewing your assessment:
Assessments should be reviewed carefully for any discrepancies. To determine if your assessment is reasonable, compare the assessment on your notice to the typical market value of your property based on last year’s assessment using the City’s Webmap application at chestermere.ca/webmap.
If you do not have any concerns with your assessment, no further action is required and you can file your assessment in your records for future reference.
Who do I contact with questions or complaints about my assessment?
Questions or complaints related to your assessment must be submitted to the Accurate Assessment Group by calling 1-877-438-2305 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not agree with the assessor’s explanation or calculation, you have the right to file a formal complaint no later than 60 days from the mailing of the Assessment Notice – May 27, 2022.
