You may receive an Amended Property Assessment Notice as a result of a change made to your property that was not included on the previous Notice. MPAC is legislatively responsible for updating assessments when changes are made to properties. Some of the reasons these Notices are sent out are because of the following:
- change to property ownership, legal description, or school support;
- change to the property’s assessment resulting from a Request for Reconsideration or Assessment Review Board decision;
- property value increase/decrease reflecting a change to the property, for example a new structure, addition or removal of an old structure; or
- change in the classification or tax liability of the property.
Types of Property Change Notices
Post Roll Amended Notice
At any time during a taxation year, if there was a factual error(s) in the assessed value, classification or tax status of your property, MPAC has the authority to correct the error by issuing a Post Roll Amended Notice. This notice corrects the assessment(s) provided in a previously issued Property Assessment Notice
Amended Property Assessment Change Notice
At any time, during the taxation year, if there was a factual error(s) in the assessed value, classification or tax status shown on a previously issued Property Assessment Change Notice, MPAC has the authority to correct the error by issuing an Amended Property Assessment Change Notice.
Advisory Notice of Adjustment
Where there has been a change to the assessed value that affects the phase-in values for the current or preceding taxation years and there is no other method to report the revised phase-in values, an Advisory Notice of Adjustment is sent to the property taxpayer. An Advisory Notice of Adjustment is a notification only. These notices are typically used to advise of the change in the phased-in assessment following a decision of the Assessment Review Board.
