Understanding your Property Assessment Notice

The front page of your notice shows your property’s assessed value, capped assessment (if eligible for the Capped Assessment Program) and taxable assessed value (used to calculate your property taxes).

The back of the assessment notice includes five years of assessment values for your property.

In Nova Scotia, property assessments are based on the real estate market, one year prior to the current year.
