MPAC

Municipal Property Assessment Corporation

Every municipality in Ontario is a member of MPAC, a non-share capital, not-for-profit corporation whose main responsibility is to provide its customers - property owners, tenants, municipalities, and government and business stakeholders - with consistent and accurate property assessments.

MPAC administers a uniform, province-wide property assessment system based on current value assessment in accordance with the provisions of the Assessment Act. It provides municipalities with a range of services, including the preparation of annual assessment rolls used by municipalities to calculate property taxes.

Request for Reconsideration

RfRs can be requested for various reasons, including to correct:

  • an assessed value that is too high or too low;
  • property data, which can include the size of a building or the area of land;
  • the effective date for a supplementary or omitted assessment;
  • property classification; and
  • the portion of assessed value attributable to each class for those properties that have more than one property class.

What cannot be reviewed as part of the RfR process is the amount of property taxes paid to a municipality.

Before filing a Request for Reconsideration, please contact MPAC toll-free at 1 866 296-6722 or TTY 1 877 889-6722. A representative will review the information on file to ensure it is correct and up-to-date.

The RfR deadline is usually March 31 of the applicable taxation year.  However, given the emergency declared by the Province of Ontario, pursuant to the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act and regulations made thereunder, the RfR deadline for the 2020 taxation year will be 16 days after the emergency is lifted.

Tax Bill Breakdown

The Township of Nipigon collects taxes for all properties within its boundaries. However, the Total Tax Rate applicable in the Township of Nipigon is actually made up of three different Tax Rates, each raised for a different entity, being the Township of Nipigon, the Thunder Bay District, and the Boards of Education. These independently calculated Tax Rates combine to make up your Total Tax Rate. This Total Tax Rate is multiplied by your property's assessment to determine how much your annual taxes will be. Tax Rates are not usually determined until late spring because of the timing of the budgeting process of the three entities involved.

The breakdown of the tax bill in terms of funds raised is as follows:

  • Thunder Bay District
  • School Boards
  • Township
