Calgary 2013 Advanced Consultation Period (Oct 4 - 31, 2012)
It's that time of the year again ... Non-residential property owners and occupiers in Calgary, mark your calendars! The City has announced that its 2013 Advanced Consultation Period will start on October 4 and continute until October 31, 2012. During this time, taxpayers are given the opportunity to engage in a 2-way exchange of information discussing property and business specific questions in advance of the 2013 Assessment Notice mailing. Upon contacting the City, taxpayers are provided with the preliminary 2013 property or business assessment.
Representatives must have valid Authorization of Agency (AOA) filed with the City of Calgary prior to the commencement of any discussions during the 3 week period.
Customer Review Period
Following the mailing of the 2013 assessment notices in January 2013, all taxpayers will have a 60 day period in which to participate in discussions regarding the correctness and fairness of the subject assessment. The values reflected on the 2013 assessment notices will be based on the market value of property and the typical net annual rental value of the business space as of July 01, 2012.
