Property Tax Information

Your property taxes are determined by multiplying the phased in assessment of your property by the annual tax rate for the property type or "Property Class". This will result in the amount of taxes that are owed for the year. If you have just built a new home, there may be a delay in receiving your supplementary tax bill until the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) has completed all of the paperwork. When you receive your assessment notice, you have an opportunity to contact MPAC if you feel that your assessment is incorrect. For residential properties, the property owner must complete a "Request for Reconsideration" by no later than March 31 of the following year, or 90 days after receiving the Notice of Assessment. These forms are available at the municipal office or from the MPAC website at
