Taxes & Assessment

The Revenue Division is responsible for the billing of interim, final and supplementary property taxes; tax, provincial offences and miscellaneous receivables; payment processing and cashiers; review and appeal of property assessment information received from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC); and property tax policy.

This site will explain who sets property taxes, where the information comes from upon which property taxes are based, who plays what role in the process leading from the creation of taxation policy to your tax bill, and many other tax questions.

The City collects property taxes on behalf of the City of Mississauga, Region of Peel, and the Province of Ontario (Education). Each level of Government is responsible for its own tax rates.

Assessment & Tax Legislation

The Provincial Government sets the legislative framework for assessment and taxation in Ontario. It does this by creating legislation, called Provincial Statutes. The Government also creates regulations, which are authorized under the Statutes. The principal ministry involved in setting assessment and taxation policies is the Ministry of Finance, through the Assessment and Municipal Acts. These laws may be viewed at www.eLaws.ca.

Assessed Value - MPAC

The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for assessing all property in Ontario. It operates under the authority of the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation Act. Every municipality in Ontario is a member of the Corporation. The Corporation is governed by a Board of Directors who are appointed by the Minister of Finance.

MPAC does not set assessment policy but it does administer these policies. Its main responsibility is to calculate assessment values and to classify properties according to their use, for each of the over four million properties in Ontario. These values are also provided to municipalities on an annual assessment roll. The City, Region and the Province use these values when they calculate property taxes and education taxes.

Additions and improvements to your property will create a change to the market value. For questions concerning assessment and property valuation, please contact the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation office (MPAC). Call 1-866-296-6722 or visit the MPAC web site, www.mpac.ca .
