Property Assessment and Tax Notice

A combined property assessment and tax notice is mailed to each property owner within the Town of Crossfield in May.

It is the property owner's responsibility to keep all contact information current with the Town of Crossfield, to ensure all information is received and to avoid late penalties.

The combined notice will give you information on the assessed value of your home, as well as the rate of taxes due. Should you disagree with your assessed value or have questions regarding your assessment, contact the Town's Assessor at Wild Rose Assessments.

File a Complaint

The complaint process is defined in the Municipal Government Act and associated regulations.

To submit a valid complaint you must present a completed complaint form and any supporting attachments, the agent authorization form and the prescribed filing fee of $100.00, to the address shown on the assessment notice prior to the deadline indicated on the notice. 

Complaints must be filed within 60 days of the mailing date, shown on the Property Assessment & Tax Notice.

Complaints can only be filed against the assessment, not the taxes or tax rates.

Should you have questions or wish to speak to the Town Assessor, contact Wild Rose Assessments.
