Any residents whose properties were severely affected by flooding in May have an option to request their properties be re-evaluated by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation.
“Property owners . . . have the option to file a request for reconsideration with MPAC if there has been a change to their property that has affected their value,” a communications specialist with MPAC wrote in an email to the paper. “The deadline to file a request for reconsideration for the 2017 property tax year has passed, however, owners may file a request for the 2018 property tax year by March 31, 2018.”
MPAC has not received any such requests from Minden Hills residents regarding the 2017 flood, nor did the corporation receive any after severe flooding in 2013.
If the condition of a property has changed due to severe flooding, residents can also apply for property tax relief with the Township of Minden Hills.
