Disagree With Your Assessment?

Most matters can be easily solved by talking to one of your local assessors who may be able to adjust your assessment based upon the additional information you provide. You can reach them at 780-513-3952. Give them a call anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Sometimes, a more formal solution is required. If you and your assessor cannot come to a reasonable agreement your next step is to file a Complaint/Appeal to the Clerk of the Assessment Review Board.

The forms and information needed to place a complaint can be obtained in person at the County of Grande Prairie Administration Building or by downloading the Assessment Review Board Complaint form from the Government of Alberta's website.

 Assessment Review Board
 The Government of Alberta introduced a single system of assessment complaints for the entire province in January 2010. This change was the result of amendments to the Municipal Government Act and Matters Relating to Assessment Complaints Regulation

Assessment Review Boards hear complaints on assessments to ensure that assessments are fair and equitable in relation to assessments on other, similar properties in the municipality. The Board then directs any necessary amendments to be made to the assessment roll.

The two types of Review Boards are:

Local Assessment Review Board (LARB) - residential property with three or fewer dwelling units, farmland, or non-assessment matters, such as local improvement taxes and business tax. The Local Assessment Review Board (LARB) is composed of trained local members that are appointed by Council.

A Composite Assessment Review Board (CARB) has been created to hear all other matters. The Composite Assessment Review Board (CARB) is composed of two trained local members and one provincially approved member who will be the presiding officer.
