Request for review

Requesting a review of the property assessment roll

The first point to consider is that it is not enough to disagree with the established value of the building to request a review. You must be able to demonstrate that the value entered on the roll is incorrect.

What does this imply on your part?

The first question to ask yourself is: What do you think was the market value of your property as of July 1, 2022?

*This date is important since it is the reference date of the current assessment roll (2024-2025-2026).

If, in your opinion, the value is not representative of the market on July 1, 2022, you will have to demonstrate objectively and support your argument, either by comparable sales or with a report issued by a professional.

For what other reasons can I submit a request for review?

Remember that the simple argument of disagreeing with the amount of municipal taxes is not a valid reason. Factual elements must be presented to support the request.

For example, the following reasons can be mentioned in a request:

  • A new and/or extraordinary nuisance, for example: the construction of a factory, a pig farm or a new road, etc., near the unit of assessment.
  • For the land, favorable or unfavorable features: presence of wetlands, erosion, etc.
  • For the building: demolition, modification or anomalies (ex: construction defect).*

*However, be advised that if it turns out that work has been carried out without a permit, your request for information may be refused.

A request for review can lead to a decrease, maintenance or increase in the value of the property, since all the elements will be reconsidered during the evaluation process.

A visit to your property or a request for the production of certain documents and files (ex: photo) allowing the analysis of the evaluation unit will be necessary.

What is the process?

  1. The first step is for you to complete a request for information which must be sent before April 14 (online form available below).
  2. Following receipt of the form, an MRC evaluation technician will contact you, at no cost on your part, to examine your file.
  3. If you decide to proceed with a request for review (online form available below), this request must be made before May 1st (see review request fees and payment terms in the Frequently Asked Questions below.).
