To determine the amount of taxes to be levied against a property, Dysart et al multiplies the assessed value of a property by the annual tax rate.

The responsibility for property assessment values falls to the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). For questions regarding your property assessment, contact the MPAC Customer Contact Centre at 1-866-296-MPAC (9722) or 1-877-889-6722 (TTY - Teletyperwriter).

MPAC encourages property owners to visit to view your property details and compare your property with others in your neighbourhood, using the login information included with your MPAC Notice.
