Property owners, including owners of recreational properties, may be eligible for an adjustment of their 2019 property taxes due to damage caused by the flooding.
Property owners that have experienced damage can complete a form for an application for adjustment of tax. Property Assessment Services will review the application and make an adjustment to the property assessment to reflect the damages incurred. The adjustment will be determined based on the current level of assessment attributed to the buildings. There is no adjustment of tax on unimproved properties such as vacant land.
Service New Brunswick encourages affected property owners to contact their regional property assessment services office for further information pertaining to the application for adjustment of tax or to call 1-888-762-8600. An application form is also available online.
