Red Deer residents are reminded that the appeal deadline for their assessments is approaching.

Red Deer residents are reminded that the appeal deadline for their assessments is approaching.

Property assessment notices were mailed out on Jan. 17.

Property taxes are calculated using the assessed value.

If you believe there is an error on your property assessment notice, there are two steps you can take to address the issue.

First contact the city’s assessment office, at 403-342-8126, and arrange to speak with an assessor.

Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and scheduled meetings will be honoured before walk-ins.

If the discussion does not resolve a property owner’s concern, they can submit a formal appeal, along with the appropriate form and filing fee, which is on the property assessment notice, to the clerk of the regional assessment review board.

An appeal must be submitted by March 18.

Those who want to file an appeal are encouraged to do so early to ensure there is sufficient time for processing and review of the appeal. Appeals will be reviewed in the order received.

If you have not received a property assessment notice by Jan. 31, contact the City of Red Deer assessment office.
