Planned Property Tax Reassessment Postponement

  • The government is postponing the planned property tax reassessment for 2021.
  • Property taxation is based on the assessed value of properties and in Ontario those assessments are updated every four years. The next property valuation update, known as a reassessment, had been scheduled to be completed by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) in 2020 for the 2021 taxation year.
  • This means that assessments for the 2021 taxation year will continue to be based on the same valuation date that was in effect for the 2020 taxation year.
