Ontario’s Property Assessment Notice serves as a pivotal document for property developers and owners. The notice outlines the property’s assessed value and classification, and has a direct impact on taxation. Similarly, staying informed about accompanying deadlines for filing assessment appeals is essential knowledge, as understanding the grounds for appealing your assessment can potentially lead to a reduction in your tax burden. Zoning and rezoning decisions also play a pivotal role in property taxation, as changes can alter your property’s assessed value and, subsequently, your tax liability.
