Tax Appeals

If there was a change to your property during the year that may impact your property taxes, you can file an appeal with us.

File a tax adjustment appeal

Property tax adjustments are regulated by Section 357 and 358 of the Municipal Act. You can apply to adjust your property taxes based on a significant change to your property that took place in the previous year. Complete the Tax Appeal Application Form and send it to us by the last day of February. Email it to our Finance division, drop it off or mail it to the Town of Caledon.

Eligibility

To be eligible for a tax adjustment, you must meet one of these criteria:

  • You've changed the use of the property, which may change the tax classification
  • You've changed the use of the property so the land has become exempt from taxes
  • A fire or demolition has razed or damaged a structure
  • You've removed a mobile home
  • You're repairing or renovating the property to prevent you from using the land normally for at least three consecutive months
  • A large error was made in the preparation of your assessment by MPAC; like an incorrect square footage, lot size or other factual error; but not errors in judgement in assessing the property

Only for a large factual error made by MPAC, you can include up to the last three years in your application.
