The City of Calgary Assessment annually prepares, communicates and defends property assessments within Calgary. Through fair and equitable assessments, the resulting property taxes support the essential City services provided to Calgarians.

About Assessment

To ensure all Calgary property owners pay their fair share of municipal taxes, The City conducts assessments each year that reflect the market value for property as of July 1 of the previous year, as provisioned by the Municipal Government Act.

Assessment notices are mailed each year in early January. As mandated by the Municipal Government Act assessment notices show a "Mailing Date" and "Notice of Assessment Date". The mailing date will be seven days prior to the notice of assessment date. The City of Calgary recognizes the mailing date as the beginning of the Customer Review Period, which extends the mandated 60-day review period to a 67-day review period.

Property owners should carefully review their notice and contact Assessment if they have any questions or would like more information. Each notice includes a roll number and confidential access code.

Assessment notices are not tax bills. Tax bills are mailed in May to property owners.
