You may have already received your Current Value Assessment (CVA) from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). If you havent' you soon will. The deadline to appeal your Current Value Assessment is March 31, 2008.
It is important to know that an increase in your current value assessment does not necessarily mean a tax increase. The new value will affect your taxes only if it is "larger than the average assessment increase". If your stated value of your home is significantly higher and you want to appeal the value you have until March 31 2008 to do so. Visit www.barrie.ca or www.mpac.ca for more information. A Real Estate Sales Representative can also help by providing a letter of "opinion of value".
