Assessment Complaint Requirements

Filing A Complaint
If you choose to file a complaint, it is important to note that you must:
  • Include a complaint fee of
    • 40.00 for residential property containing three or fewer dwellings
    • $250.00 for residential property containing four or more dwellings
    • $40.00 for farmland
    • $250 for non-residential property
  • File the complaint on or before the date indicated on the front of the assessment notice.
  • Complete and file the Assessment Review Board Complaint form with the clerk of the Assessment Review Board.
  • If you will be represented by an agent during the complaint process you  must also complete and file the Assessment Complaints Agent Authorization form with the clerk of the Assessment Review Board.
The Assessment Review Board Complaint form and the Assessment Complaints Agent Authorization form may both be found at City Hall and are available upon request or via the links below.
The Clerk of the Assessment Review Board will advise you of the date and time of the hearing with the Assessment Review Board.

All taxes owing should be paid prior to the due date to avoid penalties, as the hearing will occur after the due date. If the Assessment Review Board makes a decision on the complaint that results in a lower tax bill, a refund cheque will be issued to the taxpayer on record.
