As part of the standard five-year cycle, County Assessors are travelling door-to-door in selected areas of the County to conduct property re-inspections.  

This year’s re-inspection cycle began March 1 and will run until approximately July 1, focusing on the area between Richmond Hill and Valhalla, and the Town of Beaverlodge. 

“County Assessors conduct re-inspections during regular business hours and will leave a call-back card on the front door of any residents who are not at home if more information is required,” said Chief Assessor Chris Gardner. “They will be wearing photo identification badges, driving County vehicles and may take exterior photos or ask questions as part of the assessment process.” 

Property re-inspection is a provincial policy requiring municipalities to perform ongoing re-inspections and complete overall inspections of all properties over a five-year cycle. The County assesses properties to determine their estimated market value annually, which is used to calculate property taxes. 

For the second year, the County is utilizing Requests for Information to streamline the re-inspection process for residents and County staff.  

“Residents with properties due for re-inspection would have received a letter and Request for Information in February asking them to self-report any changes to their property,” added Gardner. 

Residents who received a letter and wish to self-report changes to their property can do so using one of three options: 

  • Complete the online form through the link provided in the letter. 

  • Complete and then mail the questionnaire to the County. 

  • Contact the Assessment department to complete the questionnaire by email or over the phone. 

All information collected during the re-inspection is subject to the Freedom of Information and Privacy Protection Act. Residents with questions may contact the Assessment department at 780-513-3952 or visit www.countygp.ab.ca/inspections for more information.
