About the Webinar

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting all aspects of business, including commercial property tax assessments. This has a direct impact on every business member, whether you are a landlord or a tenant. Different classifications of property are being impacted in different ways. Assessments have been proactively lowered by Property Valuation Services Corporation (PVSC) in some classifications, while others may have been impacted in other ways.

Join Giselle Kakamousias, Vice President of Turner Drake & Partners Ltd. Property Tax Division, and other members of Turner Drake’s tax team, who will discuss how assessments are being impacted in the business areas of the Halifax Peninsula, and Downtown Dartmouth. She will also talk about the process, timelines, and decision rules for appealing your assessment, if you feel it is too high. Appeals can be filed by both landlords and tenants.
