Should You Challenge Your New 2017-2018-2019 Property Tax Assessment Roll?

Reading Time 1 minute read


Property Tax

Property tax is a tax imposed by cities and municipalities on immovables located in the territory of the province of Québec. Every three years, the municipalities and cities issue a notice of property assessment that determines the property value. A notice of assessment for the years 2017 to 2019 was recently issued to every property owner by the City of Montréal and a good number of cities and municipalities across Québec.

Why Challenge Your Assessment?

A city or municipal property tax assessor does not always take into account specific characteristics of your property when determining the property value. You might be able to successfully challenge that value. Consult a professional as soon as possible in order to make informed decisions.

Challenging The New 2017-2018-2019 Assessment Roll

The deadline for challenging the new assessment roll 2017-2018-2019 is April 30, 2017. After this date, in the absence of exceptional circumstances, you will not be able to challenge the roll for the next three years. It is therefore important to consult a professional as soon as possible to determine if you should take steps to challenge the assesment.
