You and "YOUR" Property Tax Bill
Your Assessment Notice May Have been In The Mail
Back in November of last year the Municipal Property Assessment Corp (MPAC) began sending out assessment notices for the 2010 property tax year. If you received one then there has been a change in the assessment of your property other than the increase due to the reassessment phase in process.
But I Did Not Get A Notice
Your Assessment will still be going up due to the 4 year phase in of the 2008 re-assessment.
Why Did I Get One
By now you should have received a notice of assessment if any of the following has occurred and MPAC is aware of the change:
the ownership of your property has changed or if for some reason the legal description has changed
the value has been changed due to an earlier appeal or request for reconsideration
there has been a change of school support
changes, additions or improvements as well as removal or destruction
Ask For A Reduction
Remember MPAC only makes changes to your assessment if they are aware of the changes to your property. If Fire or other damage has occurred and the home is no longer inhabitable contact your regional assessment office and request a reduction.
