General Information about Property Taxes

Property owners in every municipality are required to pay municipal property taxes. Property taxes collected in the Town of Greater Napanee provide for your local services such as local road repair, snow clearing, fire services, recreational facilities and much more. The Town collects property taxes on behalf of the County of Lennox And Addington and the Province of Ontario (Education). Each level of government is responsible for its own tax rates.

Please view the By-law No. 2023-0042: A By-law to Establish Tax Rates and to Provide for the Collection of Taxes for the Year 2023

Each year, the Town of Greater Napanee sends out two property tax bills with four instalments.

If you are a new property owner, or have not received a bill, contact the Tax Department at 613-776-1012 or 613-776-1008  . Payments must reach our offices on or before the instalment due dates to avoid penalty or interest charges. Failure to receive your tax notice does not prevent penalty charges of 1.25% monthly. 

Assessment and Property Tax Legislation - Province of Ontario
The Provincial Government sets the legislative framework for assessment and property taxation in Ontario. It does this by creating legislation, called Provincial Statutes. The Government also creates regulations, which are authorized under the Statutes. The principal ministry involved in setting assessment and taxation policies is the Ministry of Finance, through the Assessment Act and the Municipal Act.
Assessed Property Value - Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC)
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for assessing all property in Ontario. It operates under the authority of the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation Act. Every municipality in Ontario is a member of the Corporation. The Corporation is governed by a Board of Directors who are appointed by the Minister of Finance. MPAC does not set assessment policy but it does administer these policies. Its main responsibility is to calculate assessment values and to classify properties according to their use. These values are provided to municipalities on an annual assessment roll. The Town, County and the Province use these values when they calculate property taxes and education taxes.
