Property assessment is the estimated market value of property, which is used to calculate the amount of taxes payable to the municipality.
Residential assessment values are based on market values as of July 1 of the previous year and reflect the physical condition and characteristics of the property as of December 31 of the previous year. All properties within the municipality are reassessed annually, using mass appraisal techniques. These assessed values are audited by the provincial government in order to ensure proper valuation practices have been followed.

The assessor will contact you as soon as he is able to review your assessment. Please note: most concerns are resolved before complaints reach the Assessment Review Board. If, after discussion with the assessor, you still do not agree with your assessment, please speak with the assessor about the assessment appeal process.
For a complaint to be heard by the Assessment Review Board, the complaint form must be completed and filed at the Summer Village Office along with the appropriate fee, as established by Council, no later than the deadline date (as will be indicated on your Assessment and Taxation Notice). If an Assessment Complaint is to be handled by an Agent, the Assessment Complaints Agent Authorization form must also be filed.
Assessment Appeal Fee: $50 for residential of 3 or fewer
A complaint against your assessed property value does not exempt you from paying taxes on time or late payment penalties. If a complaint is successful, the adjustment will be applied to the tax roll.
