Authority to Collect Information
MPAC’s request for rental, income and expense information is authorized under section 11 of the Assessment Act. Section 13 of the Act provides penalties for non-compliance and for providing false information. Furthermore, if the information requested is not provided and you choose to appeal your assessed value to the Assessment Review Board, the Act provides that the burden of proof will shift from MPAC to the appellant.
MPAC is committed to protecting your personal information. We are prevented from the unauthorized disclosure of this and other information under the provisions of section 53 of the Assessment Act and the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (s.10).
For more information on your obligation under this legislation, we have linked to relevant sections of the Assessment Act on the Government of Ontario’s website below.
