Taxes provide the main source of revenue to deliver services supplied by the Township, the County of Dufferin and school boards. Properties are assigned a tax class depending on the use or purpose of each property. Annual tax rates are set and applied to each tax class. The tax levy for property is calculated by using the applicable tax rate and the assessed value assigned to each property.
The 2020 tax due dates are as follows:

The Treasurer and/or other staff has no authority to waive or alter a penalty for any reason.

MPAC is the organization that classifies and assesses all properties in Ontario under the Assessment Act, and regulations established by the Provincial Government. An assessment increase does not necessarily mean that your property taxes will increase. If you feel your assessed value or property classification is not correct, the deadline to file for a Request for Reconsideration (RfR) or an Appeal is March 31 of the tax year.
The assessed value of your property is used as the basis for calculating your property taxes.
For information on your assessment for the current taxation year or how MPAC assesses properties you may contact the Municipal Property Assessment Office (MPAC) at 1-866-296-6722 or online at http://www.mpac.on.ca/
