Assessment

Collection of Taxes

The Village of Amisk issues an annual combined Assessment and Property Tax Notice to all property owners towards the end of June of each year. This notice contains the tax levies for Municipal, Education, and Seniors Housing. The School Tax levy is collected on behalf of the province and is based on the Village's equalized assessment. The Senior Housing Requisition is collected for Provost Senior Housing.  Your tax notice should arrive in your mailbox the the last week of June or beginning of July. Property taxes are due upon receipt of invoice. A 10% penalty will be applied to the current year tax amount if payment is not received by October 31.

Assessment Practices

Property Tax Assessment is considered to be the most fair and transparent manner to distribute property taxes.

The market value of residential properties is calculated through a method known as mass appraisal.

Your property assessment notice indicates the Town’s estimate of your property’s market value—the amount it would have sold for in the open market—on July 1 of the previous year. It is adjusted for any changes in physical condition recorded by December 31. Provincial legislation establishes these dates and requires that property assessed values be estimated every year.

To ensure assessed values are fair and accurate, they are reviewed at three levels:

  • The Alberta government's annual assessment audit process and
  • Towns Internal Review
  • Individual property owners’ review of their notice.

Those with concerns regarding assessment are encouraged to contact the Town’s first.
