Access to AboutMyProperty™ Now Available at Public Library

Powassan and District Union Public Library is working with the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC), to offer access to AboutMyProperty™ at the library at no charge to property taxpayers, primarily those who do not have high speed Internet access at home.

AboutMyProperty™ is a free, secure, online self-serve application available online at www.mpac.ca. This service grants residential property taxpayers access to detailed assessment information for their property and comparable properties in their neighbourhood.

AboutMyProperty™ provides residential property owners access to:
• detailed information about their own property; and
• information on up to 24 additional residential properties of their choice.

This information can be used to compare an assessment to similar properties in the area and help determine if the assessment is accurate. Property taxpayers may also choose to file a Request for Reconsideration through AboutMyProperty™.

Property owners will need their AboutMyProperty™ User ID and Password to login. This information can be found on the bottom right hand corner of their Property Assessment Notice.

Contact MPAC at 1 866 296-MPAC (6722) for more information.
