2022 Property Assessment

Posted on Wednesday January 12, 2022


Property Assessment Notices have been mailed out to all ratepayers (persons or businesses responsible for paying property taxes). An assessment is a value placed on property (land and buildings) for municipal and school tax purposes. Assessed values provide a means of distributing taxes among ratepayers in Yellowknife.

Compare your assessment with other similar properties in your neighbourhood using our online tool, CityExplorer. For land comparisons, ensure similarity of location, lot size and zoning. For building comparisons, ensure similarity of age, quality, style and size.

Please consult the “2022 A Guide to Property Taxes" available at the City’s website for information regarding school support declarations and how to file an appeal of your assessment with the Board of Revision. Appeals may only be filed against the assessment values of your property, not the amount of taxes collected.

You may call 920-5664 or 920-5625 to make appointment with the Assessor or speak with someone about your assessment.

Following the latest recommendations from the Government of Northwest Territories, Office of the Chief Public Health Officer, the City of Yellowknife Assessment Open House scheduled for January 19 and 20, 2022, will now take place by telephone. Call 920-5664 to make an appointment with the Assessor, to speak with someone about your assessment or for more information.

The deadline to file a School Support Declaration or Assessment Appeal is February 21, 2022. For more information please visit www.yellowknife.ca.
