Property owners in Edmonton can sign up for electronic assessment and taxation notices in advance of the 2021 taxation year.
Those who sign up for e-notices through the MyProperty
site will be able to access their assessment and taxation information any time, anywhere, through their MyProperty account. They will receive email notifications and/or text messages to their mobile phone alerting them to new account information, such as their new assessment value or property tax bill.
“We really want to encourage property owners to sign up for this convenient method of access,” explained Cate Watt, Branch Manager, Assessment and Taxation. “Not only will it prevent the need to find and keep paper tax forms, but it will help us save taxpayers money through reduced postage fees and help the environment through reduced paper use as well.”
There are three easy steps to sign up for e-notices:
- Find your individual signup code on your paper assessment or tax notice. If you don’t have your paperwork, call 311 to get a replacement code mailed to you.
- Go to myproperty.edmonton.ca and sign up for an account. This will give you access to all of your assessment and tax information online.
- Select the e-notice option to receive email and/or text message alerts when new information about your property is available. All of your assessment and tax information will be available in your MyProperty account.
Though property owners can sign up for e-notices at any time of the year, it is recommended that they sign up by December 18 of this year to ensure they receive an electronic notification of their property assessment when those are sent out on February 12. Assessment notices will be sent later than usual because of delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Edmonton is taking additional steps to gain and analyse market information to ensure maximum accuracy before determining final assessments.
