Property taxes are calculated based on the assessed value of your property. The assessment value shown on your 2022 property tax statement reflects a market value date of April 1, 2018.
2023 Reassessment notices were mailed to all property owners on May 25, 2022. These notices indicate updated values which will be used to calculate the 2023 property taxes, and these values reflect a market date of April 1, 2021. Assessment and classification may be appealed; however, taxes may not be appealed.
The average overall assessment increase in this reassessment was 9.9%. If your assessment has moved in line with the average, you will not experience a change in taxes due to this reassessment. If your assessment change was above or below the average, you may experience an adjustment in taxes proportionate to your deviation from the average increase.

Appealing your Assessment
Your ability to appeal the 2023 reassessment notice value is explained in the reassessment notice. To appeal your 2023 tax year (April 1, 2021 market date) assessment, an "Application for Revision of the 2023 Assessment Roll" must be received by the R.M. of Taché Municipal Office by 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 18th, 2022.
The 2023 assessment appeals will be reviewed by the Board of Revision on Thursday, November 3rd, 2022 at 9:00am.
That being said, when you receive a supplementary tax notice for new construction, such as a new residence, garage, renovations, etc, your right to appeal will be stated in a letter along with that supplementary notice. Appeals must be submitted to the Municipal office. We strongly recommend that you call the Provincial Assessment Branch to discuss your property value prior to registering an appeal, as many questions or issues can be easily answered by phone.
