Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for assessing and classifying all properties in Ontario. Every four years, MPAC conducts a province-wide Assessment Update, and a Property Assessment Notice is issued to every property owner.

2016 was an Assessment Update year. The Property Assessment Notices issued identify a Current Value Assessment (CVA) as determined by MPAC, based on a January 1, 2016 legislated valuation date.

The Current Value Assessment (CVA) on your notice was used to calculate your 2017 to 2020 property taxes.

Use of Tax Consultants for Appeals

You do not need to retain a tax consultant to appeal your property assessment. You can represent yourself. Tax consultants are private entities that do not have any connection to the City of Toronto. You are, of course, at liberty to retain their services should you so desire.
