Averaging of variations of values

The 2020-2022 property assessment roll of the Ville de Montréal came into effect on January 1, 2020.

To minimize the impact of this roll, the Ville de Montréal has adopted a resolution that provides the averaging of variations of values. These adjusted values are used to calculate your 2020, 2021 and 2022 taxes.

In 2020, one third of that difference is added to or subtracted from your property’s previous value, whether your property value increases or decreases. Two thirds will been applied in 2021 and the entire value in 2022.

The following example shows how adjusted value is calculated for two properties. The value of one has dropped, while the value of the other has risen.

Please note that the averaging of variations of values applies under certain conditions out in an Act respecting Municipal Taxation.
