How your property value is assessed
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) assesses the value of your residential or business property. You can get more information on how they assess your property’s value at mpac.ca.
Assessment values are currently based on a January 1, 2016 value. If the assessment value for your property increases from the previous valuation, this increase is phased-in equally over the next four years.
For example, if your property value increases by a total of $100, then the Current Value Assessment (CVA) will increase $25 each year in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
How your taxes are calculated
The City of Mississauga determines your property tax based on the property value assessment provided by MPAC.
The City collects property taxes for the City of Mississauga, Region of Peel, and the Province of Ontario (for education).
Annually, the City and Region set a budget for services and infrastructure. Property taxes fund approximately 50 to 60% of the City’s and Region’s budget.
A tax rate is calculated to raise the funds identified in the budget on a city-wide basis.
The Province sets the education tax rate for all properties. The residential education tax rate is the same province-wide.
We’re not able to have different residential rates for each ward or for individual properties. We’re also not able to adjust tax rates for municipal or education services that an individual property or taxpayer does not use.
Appeal assessment of property value
If you disagree with MPAC’s classification or assessment of your property, please contact MPAC directly at 1-866-296-MPAC (6722) with a Request for Reconsideration (RFR).
Businesses can appeal to the Assessment Review Board (ARB); an independent tribunal of the Province of Ontario without making a Request for Reconsideration.
The deadline to appeal can be found on the Property Assessment Notice you received from MPAC.
Adjusting your tax account
The City can only adjust your property tax account after receiving notification of a decision from MPAC or the ARB for any change in the value of your property.
To avoid any penalty or interest charges, we recommend that you continue to pay your taxes while your appeal is being assessed by MPAC or the ARB.
If you are selling your property while your appeal is under consideration, make sure your lawyer provides for the adjustment of any taxes after the closing date.
