The City of Montreal’s Service de l’évaluation foncière is responsible for the property assessment roll for all 16 municipalities within the agglomeration of Montréal.
The new property assessment roll for 2023-2025 was released by the City of Montreal on September 14 and the average increase for all Montreal West property types combined is 41.1%. The role will come into effect on January 1, 2023.
Some residents have expressed concern as to how this will affect their property taxes. You may rest assured that an increase in the value of your property does not automatically translate into an equivalent increase in your municipal tax bill as the taxation rate (mill rate) will be decreased to help offset the increase in value.
Tax rates are set annually in the municipal budget to ensure that the Town’s services continue to be delivered with the expected revenues. Property taxes are determined by multiplying the property valuation by the mill rate (i.e. the rate determined by Council for each $100 valuation).
Property taxes = property value x mill rate / 100
