In 2017, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) updated the assessed values of every property in Ontario. All properties will have a legislated valuation date of January 1, 2016. These values will be used by the Town of New Tecumseth to calculate your property taxes for the 2017-2020 property tax years.

If property owners feel their assessed value and/or property classification is not correct, MPAC will review it, free of charge. Property owners can do this by filing a Request for Reconsideration form, available at www.mpac.ca. They can also write a letter to MPAC requesting reconsideration. The deadline for filing a Request for Reconsideration is March 31st, 2018.

If you have questions or would like to learn more about how MPAC assessed your property, visit www.aboutmyproperty.ca or contact MPAC at 1-866-296-6722, or 1-877-889-6722.

Your property taxes are determined by multiplying the Current Value or “Assessment” of your property by the annual Tax Rate for the property type or “Property Class”. The 2017 Total Tax Rates for each property class in New Tecumseth are shown below. These tax rates include Town, County,and Education Taxes.

2018 Property Tax Rates will be posted once approved (projected May 2018)
