New online property tax and assessment look-up tool for residents

From the City of Ottawa

The City is improving residents' access to information through the new Online Property Tax and Assessment Look-Up Tool that launched today. Residents can search for a property by municipal address or roll number to view the property's assessment value and property tax value for the current and previous year. This is public information and no private information such as the owner’s name, mailing address, school board support, or any occupant or tenant information will be accessible.

Every year the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) provides a hard copy of the Assessment Roll Books, which are stored at the City Hall Client Service Centre. In order to obtain a property's assessment value, residents had to appear in person to manually review the books. With the introduction of this new tool, users can now self-serve and access this information online, from anywhere, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The property address, roll number, assessment, and tax classification and property taxes on a property are public information. The application displays the taxes that are levied in May each year. The tool does not provide account balances, supplemental taxes or any other information such as the Vacant Unit Tax and Assessment related decisions. The assessment and property tax information will be updated annually in June. This tool is now available at
