Assessors conduct property inspections throughout the year. While not all properties are inspected, you may see an assessor in your neighbourhood.
Annual assessment notices are mailed to property owners at the beginning of January. The assessed value reflects the value of your property as of July 1 of the previous year, based on economic conditions and its physical condition and characteristics as of December 31 of the previous year.
By sending property assessment notices in advance of the property tax notices, owners are provided with 60 days (from the notice of assessment date) to review their assessments and raise any concerns they may have about their assessed value before taxes are calculated. Changes to your assessment will only be considered if an inquiry is received during this legislated time frame.
Basement Permit Procedure
Basement development permits that have been completed before December 31st will automatically be added to next year’s assessment.
It is the responsibility of the homeowner to contact the assessment department if the basement is not complete before December 31st. A mandatory interior inspection will be required for confirmation.
