More than 400,000 property assessment notices are in the mail for Edmonton property owners.
Once property owners have their assessment notices in-hand, they can follow three steps to check the accuracy of the notice.
“As a homeowner, when you receive your 2020 assessment in the mail, I encourage you to review the details, check what makes up your assessed value and compare your property’s value to similar properties in your neighbourhood,” said Cate Watt, City Assessor and Assessment and Taxation Branch Manager.
Assessments reflect the City’s estimate of the property’s market value—the amount that a property would have sold for in the open market—as of July 1, 2019. It’s a step in determining residents’ fair share of municipal property taxes and provincial education taxes for the current year.
If you have questions after reviewing your notice, or have not received it by mid-January, please contact the City for one-on-one support by calling 311, or visit
for more resources, including property-specific information, to better understand your assessment.
Property tax bills will be mailed to property owners in May.
