Assessment Notice 2022







1 This is not a tax bill
  This is your 2022 Property Assessment Notice. Your tax bill is mailed separately by your municipality.
2 2022 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
  This is the physical location of your property.
4 Classification
  All property is 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 specified by the Nova Scotia Assessment Act. Properties with more than one use may fall into more than one classification. In this case, a share of the value is attributed to each class.
5 Assessed Value
  The assessed value reflects the physical state of your property as of December 1, 2021 and is based on its market value as of January 1, 2021.
6 Capped Assessment
  The provincially legislated Capped Assessment Program (CAP) places a 'cap' on the amount that taxable 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 (except for exempt forestry property which is based on acreage) and, if eligible, will reflect a Capped Assessment.
8 Appeal Deadline
  The deadline to appeal your 2022 property assessment is February 10, 2022. Your signed appeal must be received no later than midnight on February 10, 2022.
9 Assessment History
  The assessment history displays five years of assessment information, including the Total Assessed Value and, if eligible, the Total Capped Assessment Value.
