To determine the amount of taxes to be levied against a property, the Township of Scugog multiplies the assessed value of a property by the approved tax rate.

The responsibility for property assessment values falls to the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). For questions regarding your property assessment, contact the MPAC Customer Contact Centre at 1-866-296-MPAC (9722) or 1-877-889-6722 (TTY - Teletyperwriter).

MPAC encourages property owners to visit aboutmyproperty.ca to view your property details and compare your property with others in your neighbourhood, using the login information included with your MPAC Notice.

Assessment appeal process

If you do not agree with the assessment value of your property, you can appeal the value through MPAC. The appeal process has three steps:

  1. Visit MPAC's aboutmyproperty.ca to check information on file about your property.
  2. Contact MPAC's Customer Contact Centre at 1-877-889-6722 (TTY) or 1-866-296-MPAC (6722) if you have any questions.
  3. Ask MPAC to review your assessment through a Request for Reconsideration (RfR).

There is no fee. The deadline to submit an RfR for the current taxation year is March 31 of that year.
For Supplementary and Omitted Assessment Notices, the deadline is 90 days after the mailing of the Notice.
