INQUIRIES & RESOLUTION PROCESS
HOW TO FILE AN INQUIRY
If you believe an error in law or jurisdiction has been made by the assessment review board, you may appeal that decision to the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta (CQB). The first step an assessed person should take if he or she believes his or her property assessment is unfair or inaccurate is to contact the assessor.
The assessor can be reached by filling out an inquiry form with the City of Lloydminster Tax Department. The assessor may request to inspect the property to determine if an error was made. If the assessor agrees the original notice is not accurate, a corrected notice may be issued.
If the assessor and the property owner cannot come to an agreement, the property owner may begin the formal inquiry process by filing a inquiry with the municipality’s assessment review board.
If you have questions about your assessment, please contact:
To ensure that property owners have a voice in the property assessment process, the Municipal Government Act has set out a system for property owners who have concerns about their assessment. The process involves filing an inquiry with the Assessment Review Board. The type of property the inquiry is about will determine the type of Assessment Review Board that will hear your inquiry.
DEADLINE FOR APPEALS AND INQUIRIES
If you wish to make an inquiry you must fill out the Assessment Review Board Inquiry Form for Alberta located on the Alberta Municipal Affairs website.
If you fail to complete and submit the form within the 60-day period from when the assessment notices have been distributed by mail or fail to correctly fill out the form in its entirety, there is no guarantee the assessment review board will hear your case.
