Red Deer residents will get their property assessments this week.
The City of Red Deer has mailed out the annual assessments of property value and says residents should check to ensure the information is accurate.
“It is important for owners to review the information on their property assessment notice because we use this value to calculate the 2017 property taxes,” says Brian Lutz, city assessor.
Assessment is based on property value last July 1 and the property’s physical condition at the end of 2016.
If a property owner believes there is an error in their assessment they should contact the city’s Assessment and Taxation Services to set an appointment with an assessor.
If there are still concerns, residents can submit a written appeal to the clerk of the Regional Assessment Review Board. Residents are encouraged to submit appeals early. The deadline is March 21.
Property owners who don’t get an assessment by the end of the month should contact the city’s Revenue and Assessment Services.
