The Assessment department annually prepares, communicates and defends property and business assessments across Lac Ste. Anne County. Through fair and equitable assessments, the resulting property and business taxes support the essential municipal services provided to County residents and business owners.
Assessment & Taxation
The Revenue Behind Essential County Services
To ensure all property and business owners pay their fair share of municipal taxes, The County conducts assessments each year that reflect the market value for the property or the typical net annual rental rate for business as of July 1 of the previous year, as provisioned by the Municipal Government Act. Assessment notices are mailed each year in May and are due by the end of June or the beginning of July. Property and business owners should carefully review their notice and contact Assessment if they have any questions or would like more information.
If you did not receive your notice or have questions that have not been answered by the information in this section, please call the County administration office at 780.785.3411 (toll-free 1.866.880.5722) or email assessor (@) LSAC.ca.

County Minute: Infrastructure
"We're finally catching up on our infrastructure, which is nice to see. It took a couple of really wet years we got behind, but we're back at it. We're catching up with incredible crews, incredible people. It's brought us back to just about to the place where we feel that it's acceptable."
