Filing a Complaint

An assessed person, taxpayer or authorized agent may file an assessment complaint.

Complaint Deadline

The complaint deadline is usually the second week of March. March 13, 2017, is the last date to file a complaint on most 2017 property assessment notices.

  • If you file online, you must submit your form and fee by 11:59pm on the complaint deadline date.
  • If you file by mail or in person, you must submit your Complaint Form and fee by 4:30pm on the deadline date.

Complaints filed late or without the required fee are invalid. The Board must dismiss these complaints.

Before you File

You may not need to file a complaint if you speak to a City assessor first. The assessor can explain your assessment and correct any errors. If the assessor finds your assessment is not accurate, they can issue a new assessment.

How to File

  • Online at https://arb.edmonton.ca/. Filing online will allow you to:
    • file and pay for your complaint
    • submit documents on-line
    • track the status of your complaint

  • In person or by mail. Complete the complaint form or contact the the Assessment Review Board Office for a paper copy. If filing by mail, please allow time for delivery.
