Assessment Review Board

The Assessment Review Board is an independent tribunal that hears complaints relating to property assessments made by the Municipal District of Taber, and renders decisions based on the evidence presented. The Assessment Review Board is independent from the MD of Taber and is comprised of independent members.

Before filing a complaint

Before you file a complaint with the Assessment Review Board, it is recommended that you contact your appointed Assessor at Benchmark Assessments Consultants Inc to discuss any concerns related to an assessment. You can review various publications related to assessment complaints on the Alberta Municipal Affairs website.

Filing a formal complaint 

If you are of the opinion that your assessment is incorrect, you may file a complaint with the Assessment Review Board. Section 460 of the Municipal Government Act specifies what a complaint may be about. Please note that there is no right to make a complaint about any tax rate.
