Filing and Withdrawing an Assessment Appeal
The Nova Scotia Assessment Act provides an appeal process for property owners who disagree with their property assessment, ownership, or classification of their property.
If you have questions about, or disagree with any of the information on your Property Assessment Notice, please contact PVSC to discuss your concerns before filing an appeal. We will review your property file, explain how your assessment was determined, and answer your questions.
Filing an Appeal:
If you decide to proceed with appealing your property assessment, you must complete and sign a Property Assessment Appeal Form and submit it to PVSC by mail, fax, or email. By law, your signed form must be received by the date noted on your Property Assessment Notice (31 days from the date your Property Assessment Notice was mailed).
You can also appeal the assessment, ownership or classification of another property in the municipality where you live or own property. You must provide written notice of the appeal to the property’s owner. A copy of this written notice must be included in your appeal submission
There is no fee to file an assessment appeal.
Withdrawing an Appeal:
If you decide to withdraw your appeal, you must complete and sign a Property Assessment Appeal Withdrawal Form and submit it to PVSC by mail, fax or email.
