Supplemental Tax Bills
If you have built a new house on your property or made any significant change to the property, you can expect to receive a supplemental bill in addition to the original bill. This billing will take place after the Municipality receives notification from MPAC of the revised assessed value of the property.
The Municipality can register properties that are two years in arrears under the Municipal Tax Sales Act. Be sure to have all property tax arrears paid by the end of the year to avoid registration for tax sale.
Property Assessment & Appeal
Property taxes are made up of 3 components, one of which is your property value as assessed by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). Property assessments were mailed to residential property owners in April 2016 with updated assessment information for taxation years 2017-2020. MPAC made a presentation to Council regarding the 2016 Assessment Update which is available here in full.
If you believe that your assessment is incorrect, you should first contact MPAC to discuss your assessment and verify details about your property. Further information is available on the MPAC website by calling 1-866-296-MPAC (6722).
Please note that taxes must be paid by the due date even if you are appealing your assessment. The Municipality of North Grenville has no authority to cancel interest beyond the amount of tax reduction achieved if your appeal is successful.
