About Assessment

To ensure all Calgary property and business owners pay their fair share of municipal taxes, The City conducts assessments each year that reflect the market value for property or the typical net annual rental rate for business as of July 1 of the previous year, as provisioned by the Municipal Government Act.

Assessment notices are mailed each year in early January. As mandated by the Municipal Government Act assessment notices show a "Mailing Date" and "Notice of Assessment Date". The mailing date will be seven days prior to the notice of assessment date. The City of Calgary recognizes the mailing date as the beginning of the Customer Review Period, which extends the mandated 60-day review period to a 67-day review period.

Property and business owners should carefully review their notice and contact Assessment if they have any questions or would like more information. Each notice includes either a roll number or a business identifier and confidential access code.

Assessment notices are not tax bills. Tax bills are mailed in February to business owners and May to property owners.

Customer Review Period

Each year, following the assessment notice mailing, there is a Customer Review Period. During this time frame, you are encouraged to review your assessment for accuracy and contact us if you have any questions.

The 2018 Customer Review

Period runs from the date you receive your assessment notice in early January 2018 until March 12, 2018.


The City of Calgary Assessment annually prepares, communicates and defends property and business assessments within Calgary. Through fair and equitable assessments, the resulting property and business taxes support the essential City services provided to Calgarians.
