On January 5, The City of Calgary mailed out over half a million property and business assessment notices. January 5 also marks the start of the 2017 Customer Review Period which runs January 5 to March 6, 2017. Changes to a 2017 assessment can only be made if an inquiry is received during this period.
The 2017 property assessments reflect the market value of property on July 1, 2016 and its physical condition on December 31, 2016. The 2017 business assessments reflect the typical net annual rental value of business premises on July 1, 2016. Assessments provide the basis for calculating property and business taxes. Annual market value assessments are legislated under the provincial Municipal Government Act.
