Board of Revision
The Board of Revision is an impartial quasi-Judicial body that has the responsibility to hear assessment appeals with respect to the assessed value, classification, liability or the refusal of the assessor to amend the assessment roll.
The Board is appointed by City Council and consists of citizens selected for their knowledge, experience and impartiality. The Board is independent of the assessment authority and panel members are not City Employees.
Typically hearings consist of three panel members and are scheduled throughout the year to hear appeals relative to assessment. Issues of taxation and/or city services are not addressed.
If you submit an application, you will be notified by mail at least ten days before your hearing. At the hearing, you will have an opportunity to make your presentation to the panel members who will consider all evidence presented at the hearing and render a decision.
The Board of Revision is independently established to hear appeals respecting assessment issues in a fair, efficient and judicious manner with consideration given to the City of Winnipeg's fiscal time frame.
The goal of the Board...
. . . "is to ensure that all parties to an appeal irrespective of the decision rendered leave the hearing and appeal process with the perception that they have been treated fairly, professionally and without bias".
