    Property Tax Information

    The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for determining the assessment class(es) and value(s) for each property in Ontario. Municipalities are required to use the assessment values provided by MPAC to calculate property tax rates. The taxes are calculated by multiplying the assessment for each tax class by the respective tax rate for each tax class.
    There are several different ways property taxes can be paid. Generally, there are two (2) different tax bills - interim and final - each with two (2) due dates. The property tax due dates are third last business day of February, April, June and September.

     

    Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for property value assessment through a uniform, province-wide system. The Town of Halton Hills does not play a role in your property assessment.

    Questions or comments about your 2017 MPAC property assessment, including requests for appeal, should be directed
    to 1-866-296-MPAC (6722) or  MPAC Enquiry
