Assessment Procedure to Request a Change of Mailing Address

Goal

To describe the steps for a property owner to change the mailing address information the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) has on file for a property.

Background

Section 31(4) of the Assessment Act requires that all requests for changes of the mailing address be made in writing. The Act also requires that the assessed person or an authorized representative submit the change.

The Process

If a change in mailing address is required, the property owner must submit his or her request in writing.  The following information should be included with the request:

  • the 19-digit roll number or property location indicated on the Property Assessment Notice;
  • the property owner’s full name;
  • the new mailing address to which the Property Assessment Notice and any other correspondence from MPAC should be directed; and
  • a daytime contact phone number.

If the person making the request is not the property owner, a Representative Authorization form of Letter of Authorization is also required.

Requests can be submitted by email or mail:

Email: Contact Us

Mail: MPAC
P.O. Box 9808

MPAC staff will process the mailing address change upon receipt.

If MPAC staff have any questions about the request, the property owner or authorized representative will be contacted at the daytime phone number that was included with the request.
