Supplementary tax bill

Supplementary tax bills are issued to property owners who have either improved their property by adding to the overall value of the lot or building or new construction that has not been assessed by MPAC yet.

Once the construction permit has been completed, MPAC determines the new current value on the subject property based on the current valuation date. The change in assessed value (increase or decrease) is then billed to the current owner of the property based on the applicable tax rates. These bills are due in two installments, approximately one month later and the month thereafter.

A supplementary tax bill can be issued for the current plus two previous years to pick up any assessment that was omitted from the tax roll. These bills will be effective as of the permit completion date or occupancy date. It is possible to receive a supplementary bill for the previous three years of taxes.
