There are a number of ways to appeal your property assessment:
This form may be used to request tax assessment relief if your property has ceased to be liable to be taxed at the current tax rate, has become exempt, has been razed or damaged by fire/demolition/otherwise, sickness or extreme poverty, mobile unit has been removed or repairs/renovations preventing normal use for a period of 3 months. A form 357/358 must be obtained and filed with Municipal Staff by February 28th in the year following the reason for application.
Request For Reconsideration (RFR)
All appeals must be submitted by filing a Request for Reconsideration to MPAC by the deadline listed on the assessment notice. By submitting an RFR the resident is asking the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation to review their property assessment. There is no fee for an RFR. The deadline for submitting a Request for Reconsideration is listed on your MPAC Property Assessment Notice.
Further information regarding Requests For Reconsideration may be obtained at http://www.mpac.ca.
