Assessment Appeals

Property owners can appeal the assessed value of their property by completing the following steps:

  1. Discuss your concerns with the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) by calling 1.866.296.6722. Owners can request MPAC to review the assessed value through a process called Request for Reconsideration. This form is available free of charge from MPAC's website.
  2. Should the reconsideration not result in a change in assessed value, a property owner may file a complaint to an independent tribunal called the Assessment Review Board (ARB). You can file a formal appeal by completing an application form available from ARB's website. Both the property owner and MPAC will be asked to appear before the ARB at a hearing to present evidence. The ARB's decision would be binding on both the property owner and MPAC. If the decision were to reduce the assessed value, the municipality would adjust the taxes for the subject property. The municipality also has the right to appear at the hearing before the Board.
