Property Tax Assessment

The value of your property is determined by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). They are an independent body established by the Ontario Property Assessment Corporation Act. 

Property value 

MPAC uses many different factors to assess property value, including a current value assessment based on a real-estate sales review of comparable properties. However, there are a few major factors that account for approximately 85% of assessed value: 

    1. Location 
    2. Lot dimensions 
    3. Exterior square footage  
    4. Quality of construction 
    5. Age of building, adjusted for any major renovations or additions

Check out this video from MPAC that explains how your property value assessment impacts your property taxes.

Disagree with your assessment?

If you disagree with your property's assessed value and / or classification, you can submit a request for reconsideration to MPAC, and they will review it free of charge.
