The interim tax levy is calculated based on 50% of last year's annualized taxes. The final tax levy is determined by multiplying the Current Assessed Value (known as "Assessment") of your property by the Annual Tax Rate for the property type (known as "Property Class").
The 2021 Total Tax Rates for each property class in the Township of King are shown below. These tax rates include Township, Region and Education Taxes.
Education tax rates are set by the Government of Ontario and the Region of York tax rates are established by Regional Council, both of these will also be applied to the assessed value of your property provided by MPAC. For questions about your property taxes, please contact the Township of Service King Department at 905-833-5321 or email@example.com.
How are property taxes assessed?
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation's (MPAC) role is to accurately value and classify properties in Ontario in accordance with the Assessment Act and regulations established by the Ontario Government.
Every four years, MPAC perform Assessment Update as part of Ontario's assessment cycle. The last province-wide Assessment Update took place in 2016. The new assessment on the return of the Assessment Roll reflects the legislated January 1, 2016 valuation date for re-assessment review cycle 2017 to 2020. Updated Property Assessment Notices were sent by MPAC to residential property owners in June of 2016 and notices for business properties and farms were sent in the fall of 2016.
The assessment values on the MPAC notice will be used to calculate your property taxes for the years 2017 to 2020. An assessment increase does not necessarily result in an increase in your property taxes. For questions regarding your property assessment value or classification, please contact MPAC.
Have a question or concern about your property assessment value or classification. Please visit their website at www.mpac.ca or contact the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).

For newly constructed homes or buildings, the property taxes may not have been assessed in full at the time when the Final Tax Notice was generated. The Tax Notice(s) only captured the value of the land if the building portion has yet to be determined.
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) determines the assessed values for all properties in Ontario. Due to the volume of buildings to be assessed in Ontario, your property may not be fully assessed in the current taxation year. Any taxes owing on the building will be retro-active to the date of occupancy and you will receive Supplementary Notice(s) to reflect the taxes owing for current and/or prior years. Once this process is completed, the valuation for land and building will be combined and levied accordingly in subsequent taxation years.
