2022 Assessment Notice
Property Assessment Notices
The Town of Coronation mailed Assessment Notices on February 14th, 2023. Your 2023 Property Assessment notice tells you the current Town assessed value of your property. Due to the processing delay at the Province of Alberta Land Titles Office, recent ownership and mailing address changes may not be reflected on Assessment Notices.
Property Assessment Notices
Why do I receive a Property Assessment Notice before my property tax bill?
Your property's assessed value is used to calculate your Property Tax Bill once Town Council sets the property tax rate in May. Property Assessment Notices were mailed out on February 7th, 2023, to allow property owners time to review the assessed value and to address any concerns with Revenue & Assessment Services. Since you are not able to dispute your Property Tax Bill, it is important to carefully review your Property Assessment Notice before the April 17th, 2023, complaint deadline.
What if I have a concern or believe there is an error on my Property Assessment Notice?
If you have a concern or believe there is an error on your Property Assessment Notice, don't hesitate to get in touch with The Town Office at 403-578-3679 email email@example.com and arrange to speak with the town CAO.
As a Taxpayer, you are entitled to see or receive sufficient information about your property under Section 299 of the Municipal Government Act and a summary of comparable assessments in the municipality (Sec. 300) to satisfy that your property has been fairly and accurately assessed. Matters Relating to Assessment and Taxation Regulations (pdf) lays out further guidelines as to the method and timelines for receiving assessment records or summaries.
If your discussion with an assessor doesn't resolve your concerns, you may submit a formal written complaint to the Clerk of the Regional Assessment Review Board before the appeal cut-off date, which appears on your Assessment notice.
When will I get my Property Tax Bill?
Town Council sets the property tax rate in April - May. Your Property Tax Bill is generally mailed out by late May or the beginning of June.
