March 31 Deadline for Challenging MPAC Property Assesment

March 31 Deadline for Challenging MPAC Property Assesment

What to do if you have questions about your property's assessed value

Review your Property Assessment Notice to make sure that it contains the most up-to-date information about your property. Ask yourself this question – could you have sold your property for its assessed value on the valuation date listed on your Property Assessment Notice? If you have more questions about your property’s assessed value, there are steps you can take to have your concerns addressed.

 

Step 1 – Contact MPAC

Please call the Customer Contact Centre at 1 866 296-MPAC (6722). They are here to help you.  Please contact them with your questions or concerns.

 

Step 2 – Review the value of properties similar to yours

Comparing your assessment to similar sold and unsold properties in your area will help you determine its accuracy. You can obtain information about your property and information on up to 24 additional properties of your choice and up to six selected by MPAC, free of charge.

To do so, please:

Visit AboutMyProperty™
Enter your personalized User ID and Password for AboutMyProperty™ included on your Notice and follow the instructions to register and obtain the information.

Alternatively, you may send a written request:
Mail: MPAC
Attention: GRAD
P.O. Box 9808
Toronto ON M1S 5T9
E-mail: Contact Us
Fax (toll-free): 1 866 297-6703

AboutMyProperty™ New features allow for easier searching of residential properties When you visit AboutMyProperty™, you can use the interactive map or property address search to help you compare your assessment to the assessment of similar properties in your neighbourhood. Through the map, you can view up to 100 Property Detail Snapshots to help you make an informed choice of what is a comparable property, or a property that is most similar to your own.

For areas of the province where mapping is not available, you can search at the municipal level through an address search. If you want to look up a property that is not in your neighbourhood, but still within your municipality, you can enter the address in the property search window to get a Property Detail Snapshot.

 

Step 3 – Ask MPAC to review your assessment through a Request for Reconsideration (RfR)

If you still do not believe your assessed value or classification is accurate, MPAC will review it free of charge. The deadline to file your RfR is March 31 of the tax year.

There are two ways to file a RfR:

The preferred method is to complete a RfR form.

Forms are available at www. mpac.ca or call and they’ll send you a copy. You may also choose to file your RfR electronically through AboutMyProperty™. You will be able to attach documents, pictures and reports to accompany your RfR.

Write a letter requesting a RfR.

In your letter, please include the 19-digit roll number on your Property Assessment Notice; your full name, address and phone number; and all the reasons why you feel your assessment is incorrect. The mailing address is:

MPAC
P.O. Box 9808
