To ensure all Edmonton property owners pay their fair share of municipal and provincial education property taxes, the City uses a property assessment process as established by the provincial government.
Your current assessment notice indicates your property’s market value—the amount it would have sold for in the open market—on July 1 of the previous year. This market value is then used to calculate the amount of taxes you pay in proportion to the value of the real estate you own.
All properties are assessed using similar factors that real estate agents and appraisers use when pricing a home for sale.
The City mails out property assessment notices in early January to all property owners within the City of Edmonton. This process gives you the opportunity to
- review your property’s assessed value
- obtain more information if you have questions or concerns about your updated market value assessment
- plan ahead for your property tax payment.
Your tax bill arrives in May and property tax payments are due by June 30.
The City employs an excellent team of assessors who are dedicated to ensuring your property’s value and information is fair and correct. If you have concerns about the assessed value of your property, call 311 to discuss it with an assessor.
