The Assessment Services Branch has recently released a pamphlet entitled Is Your Assessment Fair and Accurate? This pamphlet provides a brief explanation of Alberta's assessment and property tax system. It is written to help ratepayers understand the property assessment process.
The pamphlet contains information about:
Methods of property assessment; How to check an assessment; Assessment complaints and appeals; Preparing for an Assessment Review Board or Municipal Government Board Hearing; and The hearing process and decisions.
Alberta Municipal Affairs has sent out a supply of pamphlets to each municipality in the province. If you wish to have a copy of this pamphlet, it is available to you on the Department's Internet site at www.gov.ab.ca.
