What is An Apportionment?
When a large piece of land has been divided into a series of smaller parcels of land it is often necessary to “apportion” taxes from the original land block to the new individual parcels. The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) assigns each of the new parcels an individual roll number and an assessment value representing the final "built on" configuration. When the City of Brampton receives the revised Assessment (Apportionment) information from MPAC, an adjustment to the taxes is created and bills are issued.
It is important to note that an apportionment does not create any new assessment or taxes. The purpose is to distribute existing assessment and taxes to the new individual lots.
Due to the continuing fast-paced development of new plans and houses in Brampton, there may be a delay in the production of tax apportionment adjustments.
