All Planner users who are assigned a task should now receive an email notification about the task assignment. Thanks for the suggestion and feedback!

I had the same problem and it took the Microsoft Support Rep a couple of days to figure out a solution, but it's more like a work around.
Notifications don't work when creating and assigning a task from the Planner home page. You must first create the task. DO NOT ASSIGN THE TASK.
Once the Task is added, go into the Task details screen. At the top you will see the Task name and below that you'll see the "+ Add assignment". If you assign the task from there users will receive notifications.
Clearly there is a problem with the way notifications currently work. Hopefully Planner engineers will fix those issues.
