Choose the type of assessment roll you wish to access:
- PUBLIC assessment roll: Access, free of charge, for real estate brokers and citizens
- BUSINESS assessment roll: Fixed-price access for creditors and notaries
The assessment roll consists of a summary of the inventory of real estate properties on the territory. It indicates the value of each property based on its real value and real estate market conditions at a specific date: July 1 of the year preceding the tabling of the assessment roll. Once established, this value serves as the basis for determining the municipal tax.
The expression "triennial roll”, sometimes used as a synonym for "assessment roll”, results from the fact that data is valid for a period of three years, unless modifications have been made to the property.
About the appraiser’s job
The real estate assessment is produced by a chartered appraiser and his collaborators.
The appraiser’s work is governed by:
- the Act respecting municipal taxation and its regulations
- practice standards of the "Ordre des évaluateurs agréés du Québec” (Québec Order of Chartered Appraisers)
- Québec property assessment manual.
The appraiser’s job consists in:
- producing an inventory of real estate properties located on the municipality’s territory and establishing their true value,
- identifying, on site, the physical characteristics of the properties such as the size of the land and its building, the architecture, materials and characteristics of the location
- obtaining information related to the properties’ income and expenditures in the case of buildings producing rental income: industrial, commercial or multi-residential-type buildings.
At least every nine years, the appraiser must confirm the accuracy of the data for each unit evaluated, as required by article 36.1 of the Act respecting municipal taxation.
Visit of your property
The appraiser must revise the assessment roll to take into account events such as the addition or removal of materials or components (garage, pool, finished basement, demolition, etc.) covered by the Act respecting municipal taxation, which could modify the value of your property.
Free access to your property is essential, therefore, for establishing its true value. The appraiser or his representative must be allowed to visit your property, examine it and ask questions needed to complete the file on your property. Évinbec is the firm mandated by the Town to carry out this work.
