Letters to affected properties were delivered by Wednesday, April 5, 2023 and property owners are being asked to respond to the survey no later than Wednesday, June 7, 2023 to assure their assessment is accurate.
What is a property assessment?
A property assessment is the process of estimating the market value of a property for taxation purposes. The assessed value of a property impacts the amount of municipal tax and provincial education tax that is levied on a property.
Why is this being done?
Assessments are regularly reviewed to ensure all property assessments in the City of Wetaskiwin are fair and equitable. The information collected will confirm existing conditions or updates to your property, which helps the City in maintaining an up-to-date assessment for tax purposes. The information is collected under the authority of the Municipal Government Act, Section 294 and 295.
Which parts of the city are being assessed?
Assessments are completed as part of a five-year reassessment cycle. Only 20 per cent of homes are required to complete the survey in a given year. This year’s assessment survey will cover the following neighbourhoods:
