New Homeowner Alert!
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) administers a uniform, province-wide property assessment system which determines current value and classifications for all properties in Ontario. The authority to do so is in accordance with the provisions of the Assessment Act. The City of Vaughan does not determine property value assessments.
MPAC mailed the 2016 Property Assessment Notices to residential properties in Vaughan on June 13, 2016. These new values will be utilized to calculate the municipal (City of Vaughan and Region of York) and education portions of the property tax bill for the tax years 2017 through to 2020.
An assessment increase does not necessarily mean your property taxes will increase. When property values increase, the tax rate is adjusted down to accommodate the increase as the City of Vaughan receives the same total amount of tax dollar revenue. The average market change increase for the average house in Vaughan is approximately 36% (four-year phase-in change is approximately 8.9%) which means those who have an assessment increase above the average may see an increase on their tax bill and those who have an assessment increase less than the average could see a reduction on their tax bill, with respect to the reassessment impact only. For a detailed explanation of this process, please watch the MPAC video, How Your Property Tax is Calculated.
If you believe your property assessment is incorrect in comparison to similar properties in your area, you have the option to submit a Request for Reconsideration (RfR) through MPAC. MPAC will review your assessment free of charge. The deadline to submit a Request for Reconsideration is October 11, 2016.
Property owners are encouraged to visit AboutMyProperty.ca to view a profile of their property and learn more about how their property was assessed. Also available are video tutorials to explain How MPAC Assesses Property and the Reconsideration Process.
