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:
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:

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:

“Thank you for the memorable sales and closing experience of finding the cottage of our dreams. A perfect fit for our needs.”I & E – Lake Muskoka cottage buyers
“Jim and Iris Gardiner were both amazing to deal with. A truly professional team. They shared a great deal of knowledge with us and really shed important light regarding potential Island Cottage ownership – all the pros and cons. Not only did they sell our existing cottage in 24 hours for much higher than our asking price they helped us find our new slice of paradise on Lake Muskoka in a very tight market. We are thrilled with our new cottage and love being on Eilean Gowan Island! We would highly recommend either Jim or Iris for any of your Real Estate needs!”J & D – Sold on Echo Lake and bought on Lake Muskoka
Jim did me a favor 20 years ago and I wanted to return the favor – I approached him and Iris at the cottage show and, even though I already had a real estate agent, he recommended a cottage property that I purchased and enjoyed for those 20 years. I therefore, tracked him down and had him be our agent in selling that property. Our priority was to find new owners that would be friendly and fit in well with the neighbors and Jim and Iris found the perfect couple Jim and Iris made the entire sale most enjoyable. The experience was so smooth and enjoyable that the sellers, the buyers and the real estate agents all got together for supper the following summer at our old cottage!K & L – Lake Muskoka
It is with great pleasure and appreciation for me to recommend the services of Jim Gardiner and the entire Gardiner Team. Jim’s awareness of community by-laws and market related activities extracted incremental value for us when we were finalizing the purchasing agreement.JB – Mirror Lake
Just want to tell you that you did a fine job for me on the cottage sale on Lake Muskoka. The sale has removed a huge load from my shoulders. Iris, just a note to thank you again. Money is in the bank!!!!!!BJ – Lake Muskoka
