Check your mailbox for Property Assessment Notices

  • Jan. 22, 2016 10:22 p.m.

Property owners should now be receiving their 2016 property assessment notice in the mail. Assessment notices from The City of Red Deer were sent out on Jan. 20th and property owners are reminded to review their assessment notice for accuracy.

“It is important for owners to review the information on their property assessment notice because we use this value to calculate their 2016 property taxes,” said Brian Lutz, City assessor. “Each property tax notice is based on the assessed property value multiplied by the property tax rate, which is determined by City council in May.”

Property owners who do not receive an assessment notice by Jan. 30th should contact Revenue & Assessment Services. Property tax notices that arrive in May cannot be disputed; therefore, owners must try to resolve any concerns they have with their assessments before the deadline on March 21st.

If property owners are not able to resolve their concerns through a conversation with an assessor, a formal appeal may be sent to the Clerk of the Regional Assessment Review Board. Property assessment notice appeals must be received by the Clerk of the Regional Assessment Review Board no later than March 21st. There are specific requirements in the filing of an appeal. Therefore, property owners are encouraged to submit appeals early to ensure there is sufficient time for processing and review. Appeals will be reviewed in the order they are received.

Details on submitting an appeal can be obtained through the Clerk of the Regional Assessment Review Board, located on the second floor of City Hall at 4914 48 Ave. Mail should be addressed to Box 5008, Red Deer, Alberta T4N 3T4.
