Newsletter Winter 2017/2018. Are property owners across Canada being hoodwinked; conned into thinking they have no grounds for appealing their assessment even though they are over-assessed? Provincial assessment authorities such as MPAC (Ontario), Service New Brunswick, PVSC (Nova Scotia), Finance PEI, City of St. John’s and MAA (Newfoundland and Labrador), trumpet the fact that “Market Value” is the legislated basis for property assessment… but there is clear evidence that this is not the metric most assessors use. Fortunately in most provinces, “Market Value” is not the only grounds on which to launch a successful assessment appeal… indeed it is rarely the most appropriate basis on which to challenge an unfair assessment. We explain why and how. It’s tax time in the Maritimes, Ontario too: this issue looks at your options to reduce your tax load. Tired of managing your contractor’s business for them? You don’t have to when it comes to space measurement; our Lasercad Division offers a worry free, seamless service like no other.
