Edmonton property owners receive their property assessment notice in early January. This notice is not your tax bill. Your property tax bill will be mailed in May.
Receiving your assessment notice in January gives you time to review the notice, address any questions or concerns before the tax notice is mailed, and budget for tax payments. Some steps to take:
- Go to Edmonton Maps to compare your property to similar properties in your area.
- Access data specific to your property, including sales information and variables used in determining your assessment, at https://assessmentinfo.edmonton.ca/ using your Password (found on the front of your assessment notice).
- Start budgeting for your tax bill, which is payable by June 30. To assist with your budgeting process, use the Tax Estimator.
The assessment notice includes an estimate of the property tax levy, excluding any council approved budget changes or any applicable Local Improvement charges. The estimated tax amount reflects the effect of any change in market value of your property if there were no changes in the City’s revenue requirement. Forthcoming changes in property tax revenue requirements (municipal tax or provincial education tax) compared to last year are not reflected in this estimate.
The actual property tax amount will be sent to you in May after Council sets the final tax rates in April and after the provincial budget is passed in the spring. You will have until June 30 to pay your property taxes without penalty, unless you are on the monthly payment plan.
The assessment notice shows your declaration of school support. To change this declaration, contact 311 or access the form online at Forms.
The reverse of the declaration form contains additional information about education taxes. Concerns regarding the requirements set out in the school support declaration form should be directed to Alberta Education at 780-427-3798.
The assessment notice may also indicate that your property is in a Community Revitalization Levy area.
