Taxes & Assessments
Realty (property) taxes are levied by the town. Taxes provide the main source of revenue to deliver services supplied by the town, the region and school boards located in Oakville.
Properties are assigned a tax class depending on the use or purpose of each property. Annual tax rates are set and applied to each tax class. The tax levy for property is calculated by using the applicable tax rate and the assessed value assigned to each property. To look up your property tax assessment use the Tax Assessment Comparison Tool.

The assessed value of a property is commonly referred to as the current value assessment or CVA. The CVA is an estimate of the market value of a property at a fixed point in time (the valuation date), or the amount the property would sell for in an open market on a given date (i.e. what a willing buyer would pay a willing seller for the property).
In Ontario, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) assigns the assessed value and tax class to all properties every four years. Municipalities have no authority to assign, alter or change the assessed value or tax class of property.
