Property Assessments

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 1-866-296-6722 or 1-877-889-6722 (TTY - Teletypewriter).

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

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.

  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.
