Assessment Request for Information Packages
Medicine Hat – The City of Medicine Hat Tax Assessment department has mailed out Assessment Request for Information (ARFI) packages to property owners of improved non-residential and multi-family property classes.
This process of collecting property related data is the first step towards developing the 2021 assessment roll. Collecting data annually ensures the assessment roll reflects current market information.
Completing the ARFI is an important part of the tax assessment process. Assessment values are established to allow for equitable distribution of taxes. Higher response rates will increase the statistical confidence level in the resulting assessment values. It is important for property owners to retain their ability to participate in the assessment appeal process. For property owners to be eligible to appeal their 2021 assessment, they must respond completely to a ARFI by the July 31, 2020 deadline.
As always, property owners are encouraged to contact the Assessment Department directly if they have questions regarding their property assessment, or if they require any assistance in completing their request for information forms.
