Property Taxes & Sales

Tax Rates & MPAC

Attached below are the tax rates for the Township of North Stormont. The Township posts the tax rates annually on its website once they are established for the year.

MPAC provides the municipality with the most up-to-date assessment information for your property. Your property taxes are calculated using the most recent Notice of Assessment, which is mailed out by MPAC. The most recent round of assessments was sent out in 2016. Please visit the MPAC website for more information.

If you disagree with your assessment, you may appeal in one of two ways: through a request for reconsideration or through an appeal to the Assessment Review Board. Forms for a request for reconsideration are available on MPAC’s website. The deadline for filing a request for reconsideration is March 31, except the year of the assessment, please refer to your Property Assessment Notice for the exact dates.  If you wish to appeal your assessment to the Assessment Review Board, you can access the form on the MPAC website or by calling 1-866-296-6722. To assist you in filing either a request for reconsideration or an appeal, you should compare your assessment to at least six other similar properties. Instructions are available at the Township Office or you may also register with MPAC for “About My Property” to assist you in your appeal.

Tax Sales Properties

The Township is authorized under the Municipal Act to sell properties to recover the outstanding taxes. A Tax Arrears Certificate is registered on title if property taxes are unpaid on vacant or improved land for two years prior to January 1st of any year.

A Tax Arrears Certificate indicates that the property will be sold if taxes, penalties, interest, and reasonable costs incurred by the Township are not paid within one year of registration of the certificate.  Upon expiration of the one-year redemption period and the cancellation price remains unpaid, the municipality may advertise the property for sale for non-payment of taxes. The Township of North Stormont sells its Tax Sales properties via the public tender process.

Current Tax Sale Properties

The Township has no properties listed for tax sales.
