SVWS Taxation & Assessment
The Combined Assessment and Tax Notices have been mailed to all property owners for 2019.
If you have not received your notice please contact the Stettler Town Office at 403-742-8305.
The assessment roll is open to inspection at the Stettler Town Office and any person may inspect the assessment roll during regular business hours. An assessed person or a taxpayer wishing to make a complaint about any assessment or tax must do so in accordance with relevant provisions under the Municipal Government Act and Regulations. There is no right to make a complaint about any tax rate.
Taxes may be paid at the Stettler Town Office by cash or cheque. They may also be paid online with the following banks: CIBC, TD Bank, Credit Union, ATB, and Bank of Montreal. Please ensure that you select the Summer Village of White Sands.
The Last Day to Appeal your assessment is normally the last work day of August. Please be aware that changes to provincial legislation have had a significant impact on the filing and processing of assessment complaints. If you do not agree with your property assessment please call the Stettler Town Office (403-742-8305) as soon as possible, well before the "Final Date of Complaint". Assessors will provide you with sufficient information about your valuation. If you are still not satisfied that your assessment is accurate, you may file a complaint with the Assessment Review Board and a formal hearing will be held.
Persons wishing to file an assessment complaint must first obtain (and complete in full) a copy of the provincially prescribed Complaint Form. Alberta Municipal Affairs has prepared several guides to help you understand the assessment complaint process.
The completed form, relevant documents and filing fee of $50 per property must be filed with the Assessment Review Board by the "Final Date of Complaint" shown on the Combined Assessment and Tax Notice at the Town of Stettler Office Attn: Wanda 5031 - 50 Street, Stettler, AB T0C 2L0 or mailed to Summer Village of White Sands Attn: Wanda Box 119, Stettler, AB T0C 2L0 Complaints will not be accepted after the final date of complaint.
All the above forms and guides are available for download and are listed below.
