2020 MPAC Assessment Update

The Ontario government has announced that the 2020 Assessment Update has been postponed. They have indicated that property assessments for the 2021 property tax year will continue to be based on the fully phased-in January 1, 2016 current values. This means your property assessment for the 2021 property tax year will be the same as the 2020 tax year, unless there have been changes to your property.

In 2016, we mailed a Property Assessment Notice to every property owner in the province – assessing more than five million properties in Ontario. Your 2016 Notice reflects the assessed value and classification of your property as of January 1, 2016 and this will be used as the basis for calculating your 2021 property taxes.

Property Tax Pre-Authorized Payment Deferral

The Treasurer has been authorized to suspend property tax pre-authorized payments for up to three months (April, May and June) upon request of the taxpayer, penalty free, as long as the payments are made up by the end of the year and the resident is in good standing.

To be eligible for the penalty free deferral, residents must be enrolled in a monthly pre-authorized payment plan and be in good standing, and the program is by request only. Please call the City at 613-342-8772 to request a deferral.

Water and Wastewater Billing Procedures

The City of Brockville in an effort to support the citizens of the City will be changing water and wastewater billing procedures in the following ways:

  • The billing cycle was initiated prior to the seriousness of this pandemic being known. The billing cycle process began more than two weeks ago in order for bills to be mailed on time.

  • Currently the payment terms on a water bill is 21 days at which point a one time late penalty of 5% is applied. We have waived the late penalty and extended the payment terms to 60 days until further notice.

  • For those of you able to pay your bill, payments are welcomed and will be processed. The revenue is helpful at this time but we understand the unique circumstances we all find ourselves in.

  • Online payments can be still be made. There is also a drop box at the front door of City Hall but we ask that proper safe distancing procedures and isolation requests take precedence.

  • Further relief opportunities and actions by council may be contemplated in future as the situation continues to evolve and council begins officially conducting council business again this week.
