Property Assessment Change Notices have been mailed
Ontario property owners may receive a Property Assessment Change Notice (PACN) this month. The April Notice is a new enhancement to the PACN schedule, which sees monthly PACN mailings through to November each year. This additional mailing aligns with MPAC’s commitment to elevating the property owner experience by providing owners with more timely information.
A property owner may receive a PACN for several reasons, including the following:
- There was a change to your property, such as an addition, new construction, or renovation.
- A structure on your property was assessed for the first time.
- There was a change to your property’s classification.
- All or part of your property no longer qualifies as farmland, conservation land or managed forests.
- All or part of your property no longer qualifies to be tax-exempt.
Receiving a PACN does not mean that a tax bill is imminent. The change to your assessment captured in the Notice this month may not be reflected in a tax bill for several months. The schedule for each municipality to finalize its tax rate is different.
MPAC is not responsible for issuing a tax bill. If you have questions related to tax billing, please contact your local municipal office or taxing authority.
As a property owner, you can visit mpac.ca and log in to AboutMyProperty to learn more about how we assessed your property, see the information we have on file and compare it to others in your neighbourhood. Look for your roll number and access key on your Notice to register.
For any additional questions about your PACN or other matters pertaining to your property or the assessment process, please reach out to our Customer Contact Centre.
