Your Property's Assessed Value
Your property is assessed at the amount indicated in this field.
Provincial legislation requires that the assessment reflect the market value of your property as of July 1st of the previous year.
All properties are assessed using similar factors that real estate agents and appraisers use when pricing a home for sale.
If your property was only partially completed as of December 31, your assessment reflects the value of the lot plus the value of the building, based on the percent complete.
If the building is completed during the current year, a supplementary assessment and tax notice will be sent to the assessed person reflecting the increase in assessment from new construction.
The identification number of your property as it appears on the City’s Assessment Roll.
To help us address your concerns more effectively, please have this number available when making an inquiry.
Every assessed property is used in a certain way. This section provides a description of your assessed property’s land use and tax status. More than one property use status can be assigned to your property, if applicable.
If your assessed property is partially or fully exempt from tax, a description showing the type of exemption is displayed.
The City of Edmonton assigns one or more of the following assessment classes based on the land use of your property. The different assessment classes are:
- Other Residential (for example, apartment buildings)
- Non Residential (for example, commercial or industrial properties)
- Machinery & Equipment
If more than one assessment class is assigned to your property, the assessment will be portioned by assessment class.
The City of Edmonton outlines the taxable and exempt percentages for each of your property’s unique land use(s).
Current Year’s Assessment
The assessed value of your property for the current year.
Previous Year’s Assessment
The assessed value of your property for the previous year.
This value reflects changes made to your property’s assessment due to an assessment correction, Assessment Review Board decision, supplementary assessment, change in exemption status or change in land use.
However, if any of these changes were applied to your account in December, they may not be reflected in the assessed value of your property for the previous year.
Estimated Taxes for the Current Tax Year
Taxes for the Previous Tax Year
This amount indicates the previous year’s municipal and provincial education property taxes for your property.
It may be different from the amount stated on your last annual tax notice if your property was subject to an assessment correction, Assessment Review Board decision, a supplementary or amended assessment, a change in exemption status or a change in property use.
The City of Edmonton categorizes properties based on similar characteristics and location. The valuation group indicates which category your property belongs to.
