A property assessment is a reflection of the estimated market value of a property and is used for the purposes of taxation. The City of Camrose assessment process provides its citizens with a fair and equitable assessment of the value of their property.
Property values are reviewed annually. Property assessments reflect market value at July 1 of the previous year. For example, the 2013 assessment reflects the market value as of July 1, 2012.
City assessors evaluate properties based on a number of variables including lot and home size, basement finish, construction quality and location. After completing an analysis of property records, verification of sales data, surveys and site visits, a computerized appraisal system, developed in accordance with international standards, assigns fair values for all Camrose properties.
The Assessment roll is a listing of all properties located within the City and their associated values. The City uses the assessment roll to set appropriate tax rates so as to generate adequate tax revenues.
