Filing a Complaint

COVID-19 Update

For the safety of Edmontonians and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Tribunals' office is closed to in-person services. These changes will be in effect until further notice. We will continue to re-evaluate these measures as the COVID-19 situation develops. This page will be updated regularly with new information as it becomes available. 

Complaints for amended or supplementary assessments can be filed online.  

For more information contact: assessment.reviewboard@edmonton.ca

 

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 10, 2020 is the last date to file a complaint on most 2020 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 4pm on the deadline date

(If you cannot open this form, try this printable version Printable Complaint Form)

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.
