All About Property Assessment and Property Tax

This section provides an overview of the key components of Property Assessment and Property Tax in Prince Edward Island.

Property Assessment forms the basis for the collection of provincial and municipal property tax in Prince Edward Island.

If you disagree with the property assessment assigned to your property, there are formal Property Referral and Appeal programs.

Property Taxes and Charges are calculated annually.

There are a number of Property Tax Credit Programs available to eligible property owners.

Property tax bills are sent to every Prince Edward Island property owner in May of each year.  It is essential that you review the information found under Owner Name and Mailing Address used for Property Tax Bills if you:

  1. want to change the name or address information on your property tax account; or
  2. own property but do not receive a property tax bill by the end of May each year.

A property may be sold at a Property Tax Sale if property taxes and charges are in arrears for twenty-four (24) months or more and no acceptable payment arrangements have been made.
