Property Assessment

The assessed value for your property is determined by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation. The assessed value is used by the Municipality to calculate your property taxes using the following formulae:

Assessed value X Municipal tax rate = Amount of Municipal property tax
Assessed value X Education tax rate = Amount of Education property tax
Municipal property tax + Education property tax = Total property tax

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation publishes a brochure “Understanding Your Property Assessment” and these are available at the Municipal office or by calling MPAC at 1-866-296-6722 or at www.mpac.ca.

If you believe your assessment is incorrect you should contact MPAC to request an explanation. You may ask to have your assessment reviewed through a process called Request for Reconsideration and an adjustment may result. You may also file an appeal with the Assessment Review Board and a hearing will be convened. Information on filing an appeal is contained on your Property Assessment Notice.
