Sarnia property tax is based on the assessed value of your home. Every four years, the Municipal Assessment Corporation (MPAC) conducts an evaluation of properties all over Ontario and submits assessed values for each of them. This assessed value can differ significantly from the market value of your property. Your final property tax amount is calculated by multiplying the Sarnia final property tax rate for the year by the MCAP property assessed value.

You can calculate your property tax using either your home's MCAP assessed value or your home's most recent market price. Just enter the price and type of your property, and we will give you an instant property tax estimate.

Property Tax in Ontario

Property tax is a tax based on the assessed value of a property. If you own a property or parcel of land, you will have to pay property tax. It is used to pay for city services such as police, the fire department, and public transit as well as elementary and secondary education.

There are two main parts to a property tax:

  • A municipal tax that depends on the municipality of the property
  • An education tax that is the same throughout Ontario.

Some cities may add additional taxes. For example, the City of Toronto has a City Building Fund Levy that is used for public transit and housing projects in the city.

Property tax rates also depend on the type of property. Common major categories are Residential, Multi-Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Farmland. Almost all homes will apply under Residential property tax rates.

Assessed Value of a Property

Property value assessments in Ontario are conducted every four years by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). They conduct assessments for all types of property in Ontario ranging from residential properties to farms to commercial properties. For residential properties, they use a number of factors, including market price, to determine the assessed value of a property. While they release overviews of their valuation guidelines, there is no transparency in the assessment of a specific property.

Homeowners may find that the assessed value of their property differs significantly from its market price. There is also no way to retrieve and compare the assessed value of other properties.
