Property assessment is the estimated market value of property, which is used to calculate the amount of taxes payable to The City.
Residential assessment values are based on market values as of July 1 of the previous year and reflect the physical condition and characteristics of the property as of December 31 of the previous year. All properties within the City of Spruce Grove are reassessed annually, using mass appraisal techniques. These assessed values are audited by the provincial government in order to ensure proper valuation practices have been followed. Annual assessment notices are generally mailed in February of each year.
If your home was under construction on December 31, you will also receive a supplementary tax assessment. These assessments are mailed in May for new construction completed by April 30th, and in October for new construction completed by September 30th.
