The assessment of your property is shown on the assessment notice which is sent out in March of each year. Property assessment is the estimated market value of your property, which is then used to calculate property taxes.
If you disagree with the assessment of your property, you have the right to appeal it. Get more information about the steps you need to take to appeal your Property Assessment HERE.

Education Property Tax
The amount of education tax that each municipality must collect from property taxes is determined by the Provincial Government of Alberta. This amount is pooled and then distributed to all Alberta School Boards on an equal per-student basis. Education property taxes are not subject to control or evaluation by the City of Wetaskiwin and support both the public and separate school systems. All residential and non-residential property owners pay education property taxes.
