The Regional Group has saved clients over $210 million in property taxes. Our property tax service can help you save money too.

Property Tax Minimization

Every four years Ontario commercial property owners receive an assessment notice, and 2016 is one of those years. In October, MPAC will issue 2017-2020 Property Assessment Notice to commercial property owners. The reality is that errors can happen.

The Regional Group will review your assessment notice for a reasonable fee, and determine whether it looks correct and equitable. If it isn’t, we will assist with the preparation and filing of a Request for Reconsideration, and take this through to a successful resolution of the assessment.

How will I know if my assessment is reasonable and when should I call Regional?

There are many factors that influence the assessed value, including property classification, neighbourhood, building and lot sizes and how your property really competes in the marketplace. Like any other business matter, review carefully and check all of the information in the Property Assessment Notice.

If you own or manage multiple properties, or unusual or limited-market properties, there is a higher likelihood of problems with your assessment and they may not be readily apparent to the untrained eye. You need an expert on your side who understands real estate and property valuation, the assessment process and the people involved.

The Regional Group will review your assessments and work with you through the entire process.

Contact John Clark to get started and have your assessment reviewed by an expert.
