Tax Alert | 2024 Newfoundland and Labrador Property Tax Appeal Deadlines

Tax Development Jul 13, 2023

The 2024 appeal deadlines for Newfoundland and Labrador property assessments are rapidly approaching. Property owners of industrial and commercial complexes who wish to review their assessment have the right to file an appeal with the assessment review court.

Key Considerations

The City of St. John’s is subject to a two-year property tax assessment cycle with an annual right of appeal, while properties in the rest of the province are subject to assessment annually. All property values in the province are assessed as of a reference date (also known as the base date), with land and all improvements taken into consideration. The base date for St. John’s is January 1, 2022, but for all remaining municipalities, it is January 1, 2023.

Appeal Deadlines


After the appeal deadline, the municipal assessment will become fixed for the current year.
