MPAC 2015 Year End

Property Assessment Notices

Please note that any properties that have undergone change since the 2012 re-assessment took place, can expect to receive a PROPERTY ASSESSMENT NOTICE from the MUNICIPAL PROPERTY ASSESSMENT CORPORATION (MPAC).

In October 2015, MPAC will begin mailing nearly one million Property Assessment Notices to property taxpayers across the province. Note that the NOTICE will come from MPAC and not from the Municipality of Calvin.

Each Notice mailed shows the assessed value and classification of a property based on the legislated valuation date of January 1, 2012. This valuation is in place for the 2013-2016 property tax years. All eligible assessment increases are phased-in over four years while decreases are applied immediately.

Some of the reasons you may receive a Property Assessment Notice this fall include:

  • a change to property ownership or legal description
  • a change to the property’s assessment resulting from a Request for Reconsideration (RfR) or Assessment Review Board decision
  • a property value increase or decrease reflecting a change to the property. For example, a new structure, addition, or removal or demolition of an old structure, or
  • a change in the classification or tax liability of a property

Please pay attention to the MPAC NOTICE if you receive one. It will contain the revised Current Assessment Value (CVA) of your property. This is what the Municipality uses to calculate your Property Taxes on an annual basis.

If you do not agree with the CVA provided by MPAC in October 2015, you have until the deadline date of March 31, 2016 to file a Request for Reconsideration (RfR) with MPAC. To find the RfR forms please visit https://www.mpac.ca/PropertyOwners/ResolvingAssessmentConcerns. If you do not have access to a computer, please contact the Calvin Municipal Office at 705-744-2700 and we can provide the form to you.
