2021 Property Assessment

Posted on Friday January 15, 2021

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 “2021 A Guide to Property Taxes” 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.

Assessment Open Houses are scheduled for January 26 and 27, 2021 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at City Hall. The Assessor will be on site to answer any of your assessment questions by appointment. You may call 920-5664 or 920-5625 to make appointment with the Assessor or speak with someone about your assessment.

The deadline to file a School Support Declaration or Assessment Appeal is February 19, 2021. For more information please Property Assessment and Taxation page.
