Assessment Notice 2020








1 This is not a tax bill
  This is your 2020 property assessment notice. Your tax bill is mailed separately by your municipality.
2 2020 Property Assessment Notice
  You can view detailed information about your property by accessing your "My Property Report" using the Assessment Account Number (AAN) and PIN Number on your assessment notice.
3 Property Description
  The property description listed here is the physical location of your property.
4 Classification
  All properties are classified into one of three possible classes: Residential, Resource or Commercial. Classification is based on a property's use or intended use, and whether it meets the requirements for the class as specified by the Assessment Act.
5 Assessed Value
  The assessed value reflects the physical state of your property as of December 1, 2019, and is based on market value as of January 1, 2019. The breakdown between land and building (if applicable) can be found on your "My Property Report".
6 Capped Assessment
  The provincially legislated Capped Assessment Program (CAP) places a 'cap' on the amount that residential property assessments can increase year over year. If your property meets the criteria to be eligible for the CAP, it will be reflected on your notice.
7 Taxable Assessed Value
  The taxable assessed value is used to calculate your property taxes (with the exception of exempt forestry property which is based on acreage) and if eligible, will reflect a Capped Assessment.
8 Appeal Deadline
  The deadline to appeal your 2020 property assessment is February 13, 2020. Your signed appeal must be received no later than midnight on February 13, 2020.
9 Assessment History
  Displays five years of assessment information, including the Total Assessed Value, and if eligible, the Total Capped Assessment Value.
10 Register for epost
  You can now receive your annual property assessment notice online through Canada Post's epost service. To register you will need your Assessment Account Number (AAN) and the name as it appears on this notice.
