What is CRASC?

Capital Region Assessment Services Commission (CRASC) is a regional assessment authority in the province of Alberta, Canada. It is responsible for assessing the value of properties for tax purposes in the municipalities that make up the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.

CRASC operates under the authority of the Municipal Government Act of Alberta and is governed by a board of directors appointed by the member municipalities. Its main function is to determine the market value of all properties within its jurisdiction and to create a property assessment roll that is used by the member municipalities to calculate property taxes.

CRASC’s team of qualified assessors provides property assessments for member municipalities, using a standardized and transparent approach to ensure that assessments are fair and accurate.

What is a property assessment and why is it important?

Property assessments play an important role in the equitable distribution of property taxes. They serve as the basis for calculating property tax bills for individual property owners. Assessments ensure that each property owner pays their fair share of taxes based on the value of their property relative to others in the jurisdiction.

How does CRASC determine the assessed value of a property?

In Alberta, most property is assessed on the basis of ‘market value’, which is considered to be the fairest and most equitable way to assess the property. Market value is defined as the price a property might reasonably be expected to sell for if sold by a willing buyer after appropriate time and exposure in an open market.

Three approaches are used to determine a property’s market value:

  • Direct Sales Comparison
  • Cost Approach
  • Income Approach
