Assessment Notices are typically mailed out the first week of March every year. Tax Notices are typically mailed in late May every year.
Assessments that were mailed at the end of May reflect the physical condition of the property as of December 31st the previous year.
When a house is partially complete as of December 31, the total assessment value includes the value of the lot, plus a value for the building based on the percentage complete at that time.
If a house is completed or occupied during the current year, you will receive a supplementary assessment notice that reflects the total value of the property less the amount that has already been assessed for the land and partially completed. The supplementary assessment is pro rated to reflect the number of months the house is complete or occupied.

If you are not satisfied after speaking with an assessor, you may file a written complaint to the Assessment Review Board within 60 days of the date on your assessment notice. Contact Legislative Services for information on filing an assessment appeal.
For additional information on filing an assessment complaint, please contact Alberta Municipal Affairs for details.
There are many factors that affect the market value of a property:
For example, a location beside a large park may add to value, whereas a location on a traffic corridor may reduce the market value.
To make a proper assessment on a building, it is desirable that an assessor see the inside as well as the outside.
To estimate the market value, an assessor must conduct interior inspections. If the assessor is unable to inspect the interior, the assessment will be based on existing assessment data and similar buildings.
Mass appraisal is the process of valuing many properties as of a specific valuation date, using standard methods, employing common data, and allowing for statistical testing.
The use of a mass-appraisal process results in assessments that are accurate in comparison to the market standard and uniform in comparison to similar properties.
The market sets the value of your property.
Three methods may be used to estimate market value assessments:
Improvements that increase the market value of a property will generally increase the assessment.
Typical items that may increase the assessed value are:
Regular maintenance will help retain the market value of a property, but not necessarily affect the assessment.
