Assessment Review Boards

In an effort to prepare for, and prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo has closed all offices to the public. While all our municipal offices are closed, we will still be accepting Assessment Review Board Complaints.

The deadline date to file a complaint has been altered by Ministerial Order MAG:014/20 to 4:30 p.m. on June 1, 2020.  Please submit your completed Complaint forms to ARB@rmwb.ca.  For your complaint to be valid, Complaint forms and appeal fees must be received by the deadline date.

For any other questions, please visit rmwb.ca/ARB or direct your inquiry to the Clerk of the Assessment Review Board at ARB@rmwb.ca.

The Assessment Review Boards are quasi-judicial boards, which means the hearings are conducted in a court like manner. The Assessment Review Boards are established to hear appeals regarding assessment notices and tax notices (other than property tax) and make decisions on these appeals in accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Government Act.

Hearings can take place at any time throughout the year, however the majority are typically held during the months following the mailing of annual assessments. Hearings are currently held in the evenings and weekends on an as-needed basis.
