Steps to filing an assessment complaint

  1. Review your property details through your myAIRDRIE account or by calling the Assessment Department.
  2. If you suspect an error, contact the Assessment Department to discuss your concerns with an Assessor.
  3. If the Assessment Department is not able to resolve your concern, you have the right to file a formal complaint against your assessment with the Assessment Review Board. An assessment complaint is not an appeal for lower taxes.
  4. The Assessment Review Board Clerk must receive your written complaint no later than the date specified on your notice. A copy of the Property Assessment Complaint form is available on the Municipal Affairs website.

*If you have filed a complaint, you must pay your taxes by the due date to avoid penalties. Taxes are due at the end of June*

Filing an Assessment Complain:
All complaints must be made using the Assessment Review Board Complaint Form. It must include:

  • Why you think the information or assessed value shown on your assessment notice is incorrect
  • If you disagree with the assessed value, indicate what you believe the assessed value should be
  • The filing fee noted on your property assessment notice
  • The date and outcome of the discussion you had with an assessor. If you did not speak with an assessor, please specify why

An agent may file a complaint on your behalf if you complete an Assessment Complaints Agent Authorization Form and include it with your complaint.
