FREDERICTON (GNB) – The deadline to request a property assessment review has been extended by 30 days, until May 1.

“In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our government felt that it was important to work with all New Brunswickers in alleviating some of the hardship property owners are currently facing,” said Service New Brunswick Minister Sherry Wilson. “This extension will give property owners an opportunity to thoroughly review their assessments and allow assessors additional time to complete reviews.”

All property is assessed at its real and true market value as of Jan. 1 each year, as per the Assessment Act.

Property assessment offices remain closed to protect the health and safety of employees and the public, however staff have resumed some of their regular duties, including the processing of requests for review.

The following options are available to anyone wishing to submit a request for review:

  • Regular mail, as indicated on your 2020 property assessment and tax notice

Anyone with questions about their assessment should email [email protected] or call 1-888-762-8600.
