ASSESSMENT COMPLAINT DEADLINE:
August 2, 2022.
What is property assessment? Property assessment is the estimated market value of property, which will be used to calculate the amount of taxes payable to the Summer Village.
How is my assessment determined? Assessment values for 2022 are based on market values as of July 1, 2021, and reflect the physical condition and characteristics of the property as of December 31, 2021, using mass appraisal techniques. These assessed values are audited by the provincial government in order to ensure proper valuation practices have been followed.
What is market value? Market value is the most probable price that a property might be expected to bring if sold on the open market by a willing seller to a willing buyer.
What can I do if I don’t agree with my property assessment? If you have any questions or concerns about your property assessment, contact the Village Office to set up a phone meeting with your assessor. The assessor can review your assessment with you and provide an explanation specific to your property.
What if I still don’t agree with my assessment after speaking to the Assessor? If you still do not agree with the value of your property, you may submit an Assessment Review Board complaint form to the Village Office at the address below, attention to the Assessment Review Board Clerk. The form and applicable fee must be received no later than the complaint deadline date on the top of the front of this notice.
Assessment Complaint forms can be obtained by request to firstname.lastname@example.org or from the Alberta Municipal Affairs website:
Each assessment in dispute requires a separate complaint form and fee. Section 460 of the Municipal Government Act and its regulations set out other requirements with which you must comply, including requirements of disclosure. The Assessment Review Board will not hear any matters or reasons that are not clearly indicated or described on the complaint form. Fees are as follows:
- Residential complaints (3 or fewer dwellings and farmland) $ 50
- Non-residential complaints $650
Fees are fully refunded if the Assessment Review Board makes a decision in favour of the complainant or if the assessment complaint is withdrawn.
How can I get additional information? An assessed person is entitled to see or receive sufficient information on their property assessment under Section 299 and Section 300 of the Municipal Government Act. Please contact the Village Office to arrange.
