The 2017 assessment notices were mailed to all Town of Hanna property owners on March 08, 2017. There is a 60 day review period which means that assessment appeals must be registered by May 08, 2017.
You are encouraged to review your assessment during the 60 day review period. The assessed value reflects the value of property based on July 1, 2016 economic conditions, and its physical condition and characteristics as of December 31, 2016.
Read your Assessment Notice carefully and ensure:
- Your name, mailing address and civic address are correct.
- The property classification (residential, farmland, non-residential) is correct. It should accurately describe your property.
Please take the time to compare your assessment to the assessments of other properties similar in size, age, quality, condition and location. All assessments are available to view on the Town of Hanna website at www.hanna.ca/property-search. Using the drop down menu select the Street Name or Number to find the address you want. Click on Search Now, then click on Roll No. and review the assessments at the bottom of the page.
If you have questions or concerns about your assessment after you have compared your new assessment to the market value conditions as of July 1 of the previous year and to the assessments of similar neighboring properties, contact:
The Town Office (403) 854-4433
The Town of Hanna Assessor – Terry Willoughby
Municipal Property Consultants (2009) Ltd.
After consultation with the Town and/or the Assessor, if you want to submit an assessment appeal, the forms for Assessment Review Board Complaints can be obtained at the Town Office (302 2nd Ave West) or online at www.hanna.ca/appealprocess. There is a fee required to submit an assessment complaint.
The assessment notices are mailed in advance of the tax notices to allow owners the opportunity to review their assessments and raise any concerns they may have about their assessed value before taxes are calculated.
Tax Notices will be mailed in June 2017 and are due Aug 31, 2017.
