2021 PIER Campaign: Key Dates and Resources

2021 Property Income and Expense Return Campaign begins May 14

Each year, MPAC requests rental, income and expense information from various income-generating properties through our Property Income and Expense Return (PIER) program.

The information collected through PIER allows us to capture the key data required to deliver accurate and consistent property assessments and supports our analysis and review of market changes and valuation parameters that will inform the next Assessment Update.

Our 2021 PIER campaign will run from May 14-July 16. Property owners who receive a PIER request letter are required to submit their information through the online portal, available through AboutMyProperty, by July 16. Learn more about how to submit your PIER information.

This year, MPAC is also asking property owners specific questions about the impacts of COVID-19 on property rental income and various operating expenses. This information will support MPAC’s ongoing analysis of the market including any factors that may affect the value of properties and help inform future assessment updates.


The following resources are available to help with your submission. If the information you are looking for is not here, please contact us.
