Assessment Complaint Process

If you believe your own or any other assessment is unfair, you can go to: www.kcl-consulting.com/inquiry-form or call 1-888-419-2128 and submit an inquiry - the assessor will contact you as soon as he is able to review your assessment.  Please note: most concerns are resolved before complaints reach the Assessment Review Board.  If, after discussion with the assessor, you still do not agree with your assessment, please speak with the assessor about the assessment appeal process. 

For a complaint to be heard by an Assessment Review Board, the complaint form must be completed and filed at the Summer Village Office along with the appropriate fee, as established by Council, no later than the deadline date (as will be indicated on your Assessment and Taxation Notice).  If an Assessment Complaint is to be handled by an Agent, the Assessment Complaints Agent Authorization form must also be filed.
 

A complaint against your assessed property value does not exempt you from paying taxes on time or late payment penalties.   If a complaint is successful, the adjustment will be applied to the tax roll. 

Local Improvement Levy

All cottages in Itaska must be connected to sewer.  When the sewer line was installed in 1989, a levy was implemented for all home owners, which finished at the end of 2014.
