Assessment Review Board

The Assessment Review Board is an independent group that handles complaints about property assessments by the Municipal District of Taber and makes decisions based on the evidence presented. It is separate from the Municipal District of Taber and consists of impartial members.

Before you file a complaint

If you are thinking about filing a complaint with the Assessment Review Board, we suggest you get in touch with your assigned Assessor at Benchmark Assessments Consultants Inc to discuss any assessment-related concerns. You can also find helpful publications about assessment complaints on the Alberta Municipal Affairs website.

Filing a formal complaint 

If you believe your assessment is incorrect, you have the option to submit a complaint to the Assessment Review Board. The Municipal Government Act's Section 460 outlines what you can complain about.

Please be aware

That it is not possible to file a complaint regarding tax rates.
