Requests for Information (RFIs): Your Role in Fair Assessments

The City of St. Albert is committed to ensuring fair and equitable assessments for all property owners. A key part of achieving this goal involves the collection of accurate and current property data through Requests for Information (RFIs). Your response to these RFIs plays a crucial role in our assessment process.

Why RFIs Matter

RFIs are sent to both residential and non-residential property owners and are essential for:

Maintaining Up-to-Date Records: Help us keep our property records accurate, reflecting any changes since the last assessment.

Ensuring Equity: Your information supports our commitment to fairness by enabling us to assess properties correctly.

Legal Compliance: Under section 295.1 of the Municipal Government Act, property owners are required to provide the requested information, contributing to the overall integrity of the municipal tax system.

Responding to RFIs

Deadlines

Each RFI includes a specified deadline. Prompt responses are vital as:

Compliance with Legislation: Late or non-responses can affect your ability to appeal assessments, as stipulated by the Municipal Government Act.

Impact on Assessment Appeals: Failing to provide requested information within 60 days from the request date limits your rights to make a complaint in the following assessment year.

Confidentiality

The City of St. Albert values your privacy. Information provided in RFIs is:

Securely Handled: Used exclusively by the Assessment Services for assessment purposes.

Protected: Disclosed only as required by law, adhering to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP) and the Municipal Government Act.
