The assessment of all properties, located within the City of Medicine Hat, are calculated on the basis of market value. The assessment is used only to distribute the total tax levy amongst all properties according to their relative values.

(Assessed Value x Tax Rate = Property Tax)

Property values change and over time the values may shift from one type or quality of property to another. To be fair and equitable and to comply with Provincial Legislation, all properties must be reassessed annually. As a property owner, you are entitled to compare your assessment, make an inquiry, and even appeal your assessment.
