Designated industrial property assessment


Annually, designated industrial property owners will receive a Request for Information (RFI) from the provincial assessor. This is a requirement for property owners provide information on their properties by updating, adding, removing or otherwise correcting inventory details.

The package contains an RFI guide or reference and a pre-populated inventory showing current provincial database records.

The RFI indicates a deadline for the response. It is important to respond to this request in a timely manner as it may impact the eligibility of future complaints filed against the resulting assessment.

Letters of authorization

A letter of authorization or renewal is required when someone other than your company staff is requesting or discussing your company’s designated industrial property assessment information.

Letters of authorization are valid for the tax year in which they are filed. A copy of your company’s request for information will also be forwarded to your authorized representative in the current tax year.

A different authorization form is required when filing an assessment complaint.
