Property Assessment

Notice to Taxpayers

On October 24, 2014, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) began mailing nearly one million Property Assessment Notices to property taxpayers across the province. 

Each Notice shows the assessed value and classification of a property based on the legislated valuation date of January 1, 2012, which is in place for the 2013-2016 property tax years.  

The last province-wide Assessment Update took place in 2012 when every property owner in Ontario received a Property Assessment Notice from MPAC. During non-Assessment Update years, MPAC continues to review properties as new homes are built, owners renovate, structures are removed and properties change use. The next province-wide Assessment Update takes place in 2016.

Property owners are encouraged to visit www.aboutmyproperty.ca to confirm their property details and compare their property with others in their neighbourhood. Login information is included with every Notice mailed.

Enquiries about Property Assessment Notices and assessment matters in general may be directed to the Customer Contact Centre at 1.866.296.MPAC (6722) or 1.877.889.6722 (TTY).  Property taxpayers may also visit www.mpac.ca or their local MPAC office.  The hours and address for the local office are included on every Notice mailed.  

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for classifying your property and assessing its value.

A supplementary tax bill reflects any increase in assessment resulting from property changes or improvements which were not reflected in your property tax bill for the current year. MPAC will issue a revised assessment where applicable within the next year to the City of Pickering, who then issues your supplementary tax bill.

For any questions regarding your assessment, please contact MPAC by mail, or through the contact form on their website.

A general rule of thumb for calculating property tax is to multiply your home purchase price by the current tax rate. For example, if you paid $200,000 for your house, your taxes would be:

$200,000 x 2016 Tax Rate (0.01266145) = $2,532.29
