Understanding your Property Assessment Notice

The front page of your Property Assessment 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 front page also includes an Assessment Appeal Form.  

The back page of your Property Assessment Notice includes five years of assessment values for your property and contact information for PVSC.

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

2022 assessments reflect market value as of January 1, 2021, based on market value sales and financial data from the full 2020 calendar year (from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020). 2022 assessment values also consider the physical state of properties as of December 1, 2021, including new construction, renovations, damage or demolition.
